Report: Andre Bouvet-Morrissette signed by Nashville Predators

According to a report at RDS (passed along via @NHLGossip on Twitter), the Nashville Predators have signed junior winger Andre Bouvet-Morrissette of the Drummondville Voltigeurs of the QMJHL to a one-year contract. Bouvet-Morrissette, who has gone undrafted by NHL teams, was reportedly invited by Montreal to a combine in June, but presumably this move by the Predators seems to jump the queue for the rights to the 6'2", right-shooting forward.

According to the Voltigeurs' website, he expects to attend the Preds Development Camp on June 25 (now that's news, we hadn't heard dates about that previously), and play for the Milwaukee Admirals in the fall.

His numbers this year for Drummondville took a big jump up, with 39 goals and 33 assists in 63 games, after posting 16 goals and 14 assists in 2010-2011. Keep in mind, however, that he was a 20-year-old competing against younger players, so apply the appropriate size grain of salt to any expectations about what he might do at the next level.

For some video of Bouvet-Morrissette in action, head over to the Voltigeurs' site.
