The speedy forward is locked up for another two years.
The Nashville Predators announced on Monday that forward Rocco Grimaldi has been signed to a two-year, $4 million contract.
The #Preds have signed forward Rocco Grimaldi to a two-year, $4 million contract that will see him earn $2 million in both the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons >> https://t.co/VIHW7soLME— Nashville Preds PR (@PredsPR) February 24, 2020
It’s no secret that Grimaldi is one of Nashville’s most dynamic forwards in an up-and-down season where no forward has really established themselves as “top dog.” While playing third-line minutes, Grimaldi has exceeded his previous career points total with 30 points in 58 games (10 goals, 20 assists).
Grimaldi and the Predators required arbitration over the summer to agree to a new contract for 2019-2020 ($1 million). The speedy forward is only 5’6”, but he looks right at home in Predators gold.
Grimaldi scored the game-winning shootout goal on Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Grimaldi is 27 years old and in his second season as a Predator.
