Predators trade forward Brian McGrattan to Calgary for defenceman Joe Pisula

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.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
