Predators sign defenceman Victor Bartley to 3-year, $2 million deal

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Victor Bartley to a three-year, $2 million contract.

General manager David Poile announced the deal Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Bartley made his NHL debut this season and played in 24 games for the Predators. He ranked fourth in average ice time with 19 minutes, 32 seconds.

The 6-foot, 212-pound native of British Columbia in Canada started the season in the AHL in Milwaukee where he had 26 points in 54 games and played in the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic. Bartley signed as a free agent with Nashville in May 2011 after spending the 2010-11 season with Rogle in Sweden's second division.

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.
