The Nashville Predators on Wednesday announced the signing of 26-year-old forward Rich Clune to a two-year, $1.7 million contract extension. The deal covers the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.

Clune had four goals, nine points, and 113 penalty minutes in 47 games with the Predators last season.

Originally drafted by the Dallas Stars in the third round (No.71) of the 2005 NHL draft, the 5-foot-10, 207-pound forward has 11 points and 139 penalty minutes in 61 career NHL games with Nashville and the Los Angeles Kings. The Predators claimed Clune on waivers on January 15, 2013.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
