Rissling traded to Predators by Capitals for pick
Defenseman Jaynen Rissling was acquired by the Nashville Predators on Saturday in a trade with the Washington Capitals.

Defenseman Jaynen Rissling was acquired by the Nashville Predators on Saturday in a trade with the Washington Capitals.

Washington receives Nashville’s seventh-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Rissling, 20, completed his fifth season with the Calgary Hitmen of the Western Hockey League, with 37 points (eight goals) and 105 penalty minutes in 54 games while serving as captain.

In 273 WHL games from 2009-14, the 6-4, 204-pound native of Edmonton has 117 points and 465 penalty minutes. The Hitmen won the WHL championship and participate in the Memorial Cup in 2010.

He was a seventh-round pick (No. 197) by Washington in the 2012 draft.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
