The Nashville Predators on Monday signed free-agent forward Simon Moser to a one-year, entry-level contract, and sent him to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals.
Moser will make $550,000 if he's recalled to the NHL and $70,000 if he stays in the American Hockey League.
The 24-year-old center was with the Predators during training camp on a professional tryout, and had two goals and a plus-1 rating in five preseason games.
Moser had 10 goals and 11 assists in 35 games with Langnau in Switzerland's top professional league last season. He also had five points in 10 games to help Switzerland win the silver medal at the 2013 IIHF World Championship.
