Preds re-sign Filip Forsberg

The Nashville Predators announced Monday morning they have re-signed forward Filip Forsberg to a six-year, $36 million contract. He was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1. Predators GM David Poile released this statement through the team’s press release:

“Filip is among the most skilled, dynamic talents we’ve ever had in the organization and is an integral part of our success for the next six years and beyond. While we have already seen his creativity, hockey sense and puck skills, he has yet to reach the peak of his abilities. We have full confidence that he will continue to blossom into one of the top players in the world. This is just another example of our ownership group’s commitment to the franchise, our fans and the entire community to build a team that can reach our ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup.”

Forsberg, 21, has led the Predators in goals and points each of the last two seasons. His new contract runs through the 2021-22 season and will pay him $6 million each year.
