Update from the Predators

Just announced from the Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Monday that the club has acquired forward Ryan Hartman and a fifth-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a first-round and fourth-round pick in this year’s draft and forward Victor Ejdsell.
