Though we all knew it was going to happen, it is still with a heavy heart that we announce that everybody’s favorite backup goaltender is moving on. Carter Hutton signed a two-year deal ($1.25M 2016-17, $1M 2017-18) with the St. Louis Blues. As mentioned, this testing of the free agency waters by Hutton comes as no surprise, but his on and off-ice presence will surely be missed by Predators players and fans alike.

The running #Heythanksforhavingmeguys tag will have to be passed on to the Blues; hopefully they’ll continue this honored tradition.


Preds sign Center Cody Hodgson


In more of a “didn’t see that coming” move, the Predators organization nabbed 25-year-old Cody Hodgson from the Buffalo Sabres on a one-year, $1M deal.

Hodgson is a young, rather broad center that could be of some good use to the Predators. Of course, that one-year, $1M deal is pretty nice, too.
