Nashville Predators, Filip Forsberg reach 8-year, $68 million contract agreement


The Nashville Predators agreed to terms on an eight-year contract extension with Filip Forsberg on Saturday, after the left wing led Nashville with a franchise-record 42 goals this past season. The proposed contract, which will pay Forsberg $8.5 million annually and $68 million in total, includes both a no-movement and a no-trade clause, which is unusual for the Predators franchise. "We don't love doing that, but Forsberg has made that as part of the negotiations and that will be part of his contract," Nashville GM David Poile said Wednesday, according to Watch World Juniors 2022.
