In an apparent effort to clear some cap room, the Nashville Predators have traded Colin Wilson to the Colorado Avalanche for a 2019 4th-round pick.

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.
