Predators sign Arvidsson to seven-year, $29.75m contract

23 luglio 2017 08:07

In a surprise move, the Nashville Predators signed forward Viktor Arvidsson to a seven-year, $29.75million contract, the team announced on Saturday.

The 24-year-old Arvidsson is coming off a breakout season in which he tied for the team lead with 61 points (including 31 goals) in the regular season.

He added 13 points in 22 playoff games as the Predators finished runners-up to the Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final.

But in seeking a new deal this offseason, the Predators and Arvidsson had been far apart.

According to SportsNet, Arvidsson reportedly wanted a one-year, $4.5m deal, while the Predators were apparently offering a two-year, $5.5m contract.

Arvidsson's new long-term contract averaging $4.25m per season is very close to what he sought for just a one-year deal.

The two sides had been scheduled for an arbitration hearing Saturday.

Nashville selected Arvidsson in the fourth round of the 2014 NHL Draft (112th overall), and he debuted with the team the next season.

But entering last year, he had only 16 points in 62 career NHL games.
