Preds stay busy, sign Smith to two-year extension
The Nashville Predators signed forward Craig Smith to a two-year contract extension worth $2 million per season, the club announced Saturday.

The Nashville Predators signed forward Craig Smith to a two-year contract extension worth $2 million per season, the club announced Saturday.

Smith had 14 goals and 36 points in 72 games as a rookie for the Predators last season. He was a fourth-round pick by the Predators in 2009 and spent two seasons at the University of Wisconsin before joining Nashville.

He would have been a restricted free agent after the 2012-13 season, so this deal runs through the 2014-15 campaign. Smith was Nashville's second signing of the day -- the Predators inked defenseman Kevin Klein to a five-year pact earlier Saturday.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
