Predators' Cole Smith: Inks one-year extension
Smith agreed to terms on a one-year, $775,000 contract extension with Nashville on Monday.
Perhaps most significant for Smith is that his extension is a one-way contract, so he can't be as easily moved between the NHL and AHL. Being on a two-way deal this season hasn't stopped the 27-year-old winger from logging 42 games with the Preds in which he has generated two goals on 47 shots, nine assists and 112 hits while averaging 11:45 of ice time. Unlikely to develop into a top-six offensive option, Smith should still be capable of recording 20-25 points per season and offer decent mid-range fantasy value.... See More ... See Less

The 21-year-old forward has added 61 hits while playing a middle-six role for the Predators this season.... See More ... See Less

Predators' Alexandre Carrier: Facing extended absence
Carrier is expected to be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with an upper-body injury.
