Who says there isn't work to be done right up until the clock strikes midnight on the NHL CBA? The Nashville Predators have today inked their second-round draft pick this summer to his entry-level deal.

Quoth the Preds:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed 2012 second-round draft pick Colton Sissons (KOHL-tuhn SIH-suhnz) to a three-year entry-level contract.

Sissons, 18 (11/5/93), is entering his second season as captain of the Western Hockey League's Kelowna Rockets in 2012-13. A season ago, the 6-0, 187-pound right wing ranked second on Kelowna in goals (26), and tied for third in points (41), in addition to pacing the club in power-play goals (13). Sissons also captained Team Orr to a 2-1 victory at the 2012 Home Hardware Top Prospects Game and served as an alternate captain for Team WHL at the 2011 Subway Super Series.

The North Vancouver, B.C., was Nashville's second choice, 50th overall (second round), in 2012 Entry Draft, and says he models his game after Predators forward Mike Fisher.

Since Sissons is heading back for more junior hockey, the current lockout situation is largely irrelevant to him, other than that he'll likely miss out on a few days of Preds training camp, and those rookie-game scrimmages before the veterans show up.
