NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have traded forward Brian McGrattan to the Calgary Flames for defenceman Joe Piskula.

The Predators announced the trade Thursday after putting McGrattan on waivers Tuesday. McGrattan, who agreed to a one-year deal with the Predators last July, had not appeared in a game this season for Nashville and recently finished a two-week conditioning assignment in the AHL.

Nashville gets Piskula, who has played 10 career NHL games with Los Angeles and Calgary with eight penalty minutes. He has played 370 career AHL games with 70 points (8 goals, 62 assists) and 320 penalty minutes. Piskula, 28, will report to the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League, Nashville's top developmental team.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
