The Predators have signed Filip Forsberg to a six-year deal worth $36 million ($6.0M AAV).
Forsberg was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st, but is now signed through the 2021-22 season. Forsberg just wrapped up his second full NHL season with the Predators, where he recorded his first 30-goal season (33) with 31 assists to give him 64 points in 82 games. He has not missed a game in the last two years, finishing with nearly identical 63 and 64-point campaigns.
The Predators signed Marek Mazanec to a one-year, $575K contract extension.
Mazanec, 24, spent the entire 2015-16 season in Milwaukee (AHL), where he was 19-15-5 with a 2.45 GAA and .912 SV%. Mazanec’s deal is a two-way contract, so he is expected to start the 2016-17 season in Milwaukee.
