NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A strong performance in the Stanley Cup Final has earned Frederick Gaudreau a three-year deal with the Nashville Predators
GM David Poile confirmed the deal is a two-way contract in 2017-18 and 2018-19, but then becomes a one-way (NHL) deal in 2019-20 worth $700,000.
If Gaudreau plays all three seasons in Nashville, he stands to earn a total of $2 million.
The 24-year old center came up huge for the Predators in the Cup Final after Ryan Johansen went down with a leg injury.
In eight playoff games, he scored three goals for Nashville.
The 6-foot, 179-pound forward had 25 goals and 23 assists in Milwaukee of the AHL prior to his call up by the Preds.
