NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators offered forward Nino Niederreiter the perfect combination of a competitive team stocked with friends and former teammates along with a physical playing style. His new two-year contract also gives him the flexibility to either hit free agency again or stick around if everything works out as he hopes. Niederreiter signed a two-year, $8 million deal to join a team he helped Carolina beat in the first round of the playoffs in 2021. He said the Hurricanes had a really hard time beating the Predators. Signing the 29-year-old from Switzerland is Nashville’s biggest move since keeping forward Filip Forsberg off the market. Niederreiter ranked third on the Carolina Hurricanes with 24 goals last season.
