Nashville Predators send veteran blue-liner Scott Hannan to San Jose Sharks

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Veteran defenceman Scott Hannan is returning to San Jose.

The Nashville Predators have dealt Hannan to the Sharks for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Hannan has one assist in 29 games this season.

The 34-year-old Richmond, B.C., native spent parts of eight seasons with San Jose.

He has also played for the Colorado Avalanche, Washington Capitals and Calgary Flames.

Hannan has 198 points (33 goals, 165 assists) in 937 career NHL regular-season games.

The seventh-round pick would change to a sixth-round selection if Hannan appears in the playoffs.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
