Continuing their long-standing trend of snapping up collegiate players out of New England, the Nashville Predators have signed defenseman Mike Moore, who appears destined for Milwaukee. Perhaps he'll fill a leadership void created by the departure of Admirals captain Scott Ford.

Quoth the Preds:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed free agent defenseman Mike Moore to a one-year, two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

Moore, 27 (12/12/84), has spent that past four seasons in the San Jose organization, posting 20 points (4g-16a) and 85 penalty minutes in 62 games with its AHL affiliate, the Worchester Sharks, in 2011-12. In 254 career AHL games, the Calgary, Alta., native has 72 points (14g-58a) and 365 penalty minutes since 2008. The former captain of both Worchester (2010-11) and Princeton University during his senior season (2007-08) has also appeared in six NHL games with the Sharks in 2010-11, notching a goal and seven penalty minutes.

The 6-1, 201-pound blueliner spent four seasons at Princeton from 2004-08, posting 52 points (14g-38a) and 154 penalty minutes in 121 games. In 2007-08, he led the Tigers to a ECAC title, being named First-Team All-America and the conference's Best Defensive Defenseman.
