NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Joe Piskula to a one-year, two-way contract.

The Predators announced the deal Monday.

They traded for Piskula in February in a deal with Calgary, and Piskula split the season in the AHL playing 46 games for Abbotsford and 23 games with Milwaukee. Piskula, 28, has played in 10 career NHL games the last five with Calgary in 2011-12.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
