The Nashville Predators have locked in defenseman Hal Gill for another two seasons, at a contract valued at $4 million per Josh Cooper's report. This is a nice match for both sides, as Gill provides size & strength which are desperately need on the Predators' blueline, while the 37-year-old is getting a two-year contract, which is pretty rare for over-35 players.

Plus, you can't ignore how great the guy is on Twitter (@Skillsy75).

This is as much about shoring up the 3rd pair and penalty killing units as it is about having an on-ice mentor for the host of young defensemen which the Preds will rely on in the coming seasons.

During 104.5 The Zone's SportsFest last weekend, Brent Peterson talked about how the Preds were hoping to bring Gill back as a partner for Ryan Ellis.
