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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
