NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Nashville Predators signed left winger Gabriel Bourque to a two-year, $1.55 million contract extension Friday.

The 21-year-old Bourque will receive $725,000 in 2013-14 and $825,000 in 2014-15.

Bourque had seven goals and 12 assists in 43 games as a rookie last season, and added three goals and two assists in 10 playoff games. He also had two goals and 14 assists in 25 games for Milwaukee in the American Hockey League.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
