In three seasons with the Predators, Jarnkrok has 25 goals, 57 points and 36 penalty minutes in 167 regular-season games and three assists in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The Predators on Tuesday avoided arbitration with defenseman Petter Granberg, who signed a two-year, two-way contract.

Nashville also signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Matthew Carle to a one-year, $700,000 contract Wednesday. He had the final two years of his contract bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning on June 30.
