Predators sign UFA forward Brad Richardson to one-year, $1M contract

Predators sign UFA forward Brad Richardson to one-year, $1M contract

Photo by Dave Sandford/NHLI via Richardson brings faceoff-winning skills to Nashville. The Nashville Predators waded back into the free agency waters with a signing of Brad Richardson, the former Arizona Coyotes center, to a one-year, $1M contract.

Why going all in on Taylor Hall doesn’t make sense for the Predators

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Rumors are swirling about the reason behind David Poile’s sudden rush to clear cap space—or real salary—or both. Yesterday, the Nashville Predators traded a package of picks and Nick Bonino (one more year at $4.1M) for Luke Kunin (RFA) and a later pick, and put Kyle Turris (four more years at $6M) on unconditional waivers for a buyout (eight more years at $2M). These moves clear both salary cap and—potentially—hard cash. With the NHL schedule for 2020-21 uncertain and sure to be impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 situation, many individual teams are...
