The Predators have acquired Cody McLeod from the Avalanche for Felix Girard.
McLeod has spent nine and a half years with Colorado, collecting 117 points (66G / 51A) in 659 career NHL games. McLeod is a career fourth liner and will likely find a similar role in his new home in Nashville.
The Avalanche signed Cody McLeod to a three-year, $4 million dollar contract extension.
McLeod, 30, had five goals and eight assists (13 points) in 71 games with the Avs last season. The only true fantasy value McLeod might have lies in his PIMs, he had 122 last season with a career high 189.
Colorado Avalanche left wing Cody McLeod will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for a boarding incident during Thursday's game against the Detroit Red Wings at Pepsi Center.
At 2:13 of the first period, McLeod was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct for boarding Detroit's Niklas Kronwall. Kronwall remained down and was taken from the ice on a stretcher. He did not return. After the game, the Red Wings announced Kronwall sustained a concussion and cuts to his right ear.
