Nashville Predators sign defenceman Scott Hannan to one-year deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Scott Hannan to a US$1-million, one-year deal.

The 33-year-old had two goals and 10 assists with the Calgary Flames last season.

Hannan has 33 goals, 164 assists and 522 penalty minutes in 908 career regular season games with San Jose, Colorado, Washington and Calgary.

The six-foot-one, 225-pound blue-liner was drafted 23rd overall by the Sharks in 1997 and has played more games than any NHL defenceman in the last 10 seasons at 798.

Hannan also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
