2017 6th Round Draft Pick

The Nashville Predators were in the market to improve their roster, one way or another, hoping for a big playoff run in the West.  They went out and acquired PA Parenteau from the New Jersey Devils, trying to find a little bit more veteran leadership, while giving up a late round draft pick for the rental.

Parenteau has had a decent season, so far, scoring 13 goals, but he is currently on the shelf with a minor hand injury, which is expected to keep him out for another couple games.

ImplicationsThis could be a positive move for Tony's players, one of the few positives that his team has seen this season.  It's a little too late for any good news on his pool team, as it currently sits in 24th place and its among three teams vying for the Basement Dweller nod after two nights this week.
