The Nashville Predators have acquired forward P.A. Parenteau from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a sixth-round pick, as reported by Bob McKenzie.

Parenteau has 13 goals and 14 helpers this season in 59 games played this year for the Devils. He’s also posted a strong shooting percentage of 11.9% this year in New Jersey. He had 20 goals and 21 assists in 77 games with the Maple Leafs a year ago.

The 33-year-old averaged 14:59 of ice-time per game with the Devils including 2:25 per game on the power play. He was not a penalty-killing guy for New Jersey averaging two seconds of short-handed ice-time per contest this season.

Parenteau carries a $1.25 million cap-hit and is set to be an unrestricted free-agent following the season, per Cap Friendly.

There is this little tidbit too:

Per the Preds:

Nashville, TN - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Wednesday that the club has acquired forward P.A. Parenteau from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a sixth-round selection in the 2017 Entry Draft.

Parenteau, 33 (3/24/83), has appeared in 483 NHL games over parts of nine seasons with Chicago, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Colorado, Montreal, Toronto and New Jersey. He has earned 295 career points (114g-181a), including 27 points (13g-14a) in 59 games with the Devils this season. The 6-foot-0, 200-pound winger matched a career high with 20 tallies last season in 77 games with the Maple Leafs.

The Hull, Quebec native was drafted in the ninth round (264th overall) of the 2001 Entry Draft by Anaheim. Parenteau has recorded four power-play goals, four power-play assists and two game-winning goals this season.

The Preds take on the Canadiens Thursday night in Montreal.
