The Predators have re-signed forward Joel Ward according to John Glennon of the Tennessean (by way of Kukla's Korner). The deal is for two years and $1.5 per season. He had 35 points (17 goals, 18 assists) in 79 games last season, his first full season in the NHL.
EN Says: Solid signing. Ward's a solid third-line guy who will chip in a fair share of offense and just in general, find all sorts of ways to contribute. He's a Tyler Kennedy type of player.
