The Nashville Predators announced on Wednesday they have signed restricted free agent defenseman Mattias Ekholm to a two year contract worth just over $2 million.

Twenty-four-year-old Ekholm tied for ninth among AHL rookie defensemen in goals with Milwaukee in 2012-13.

He helped Sweden to a bronze medal at the 2014 World Championship, being named one of the nation’s three best players among tournament defensemen in points.
