Nashville has traded Colin Wilson to Colorado to a 4th-round pick in 2019. No salary retained.— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) July 1, 2017
From the Predators:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired a fourth-round pick in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for forward Colin Wilson.
The Predators now have eight selections in the 2019 Draft – one pick each in Rounds One through Seven, plus Colorado’s fourth-round selection.
Assuming that the reports about Bonino’s money and term are accurate, this means the Predators have about as much cap room as they started with today, around $21-22 million.
So essentially the Predators have shed Colin Wilson, obtained a 4th round pick, and signed a middle six center.
By the way, the Predators also signed Anders Lindback to a one-year, two-way contract worth $650,000. With Marek Mazanec no longer with the Preds, Lindback should get the starting job in Milwaukee right away. A good depth move for the Predators and reunites Lindback with the team that drafted him.
Not a bad start today.
