Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Friday that the team has signed forward 2015 draft pick Yakov Trenin to a three-year entry-level contract.
"He's a big center, who plays a solid two-way game," Predators North American Amateur Scout J-P Glaude said upon selecting him last month. “Despite coming from Russia as a 17-year-old who didn't speak a word of English, he averaged more than a point per game and was fantastic defensively, especially in the playoffs when he was used on the power play, killing penalties, five-on-three and three-on-five. I see him as a complete, top-two center that can put points on the board and the coaches will love to have because he can play in any situation."
