A report came through on Sunday that Ryan Hartman has signed a one-year extension with the Nashville Predators:
Ryan Hartman signed by #Preds to one year deal at 875k— The Mayor John Hoven (@mayorNHL) July 16, 2018
This report was verified by the Predators this morning, via an official announcement:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the team has signed restricted free-agent forward Ryan Hartman to a one-year contract worth $875,000.
Hartman, 23 (9/20/94), had six points (3g-3a) and 14 penalty minutes in 21 games last season with Nashville after being acquired from Chicago on Feb. 26. He recorded a combined 31 points (11g-20a) in 78 games with the Predators and Blackhawks during the 2017-18 regular season, his second as a full-time NHL player. Hartman featured in nine playoff games for the Predators and tallied two goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal in Game 2 of Nashville’s Western Conference First Round series against Colorado. The 6-foot, 181-pound winger notched the game-winning goal in his first contest with the team on Feb. 27 in Nashville’s 6-5 win at Winnipeg.
CapFriendly has updated Hartman’s status as well.
This is insanely cheap for Hartman. A deal of around $1 million would have been perfectly acceptable and most of us probably expected more than that.
David Poile did a thing!
