Harpur was traded for forward Miikka Salomaki.
Harpur is 25 years old and has 11 points (1 goal, 10 assists) with the Toronto Marlies this season. He is a fifth-year pro, measuring in at 6’ 6” and 230 pounds. Harpur has not suited up in a NHL contest this season. He has played in 163 AHL contests and also skated in 103 games with the Ottawa Senators.
Miikka Salomaki has only appeared in 5 contests with the Predators this season, posting just one goal. He’s spent the season with the Milwaukee Admirals.
Harpur’s acquisition is a little curious. Will he suit up with Nashville or will he report to the Admirals? With Jarred Tinordi in Nashville, Harpur’s acquisition suggests this is a depth move.
On The Forecheck will have an in-depth breakdown of Harpur’s game in the next few days.
