Per the Predators website:

“Nashville, TN – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Monday that the club has signed free-agent forward Victor Ejdsell to a two-year, entry-level contract.

Ejdsell, 21 (6/6/95), was named Swedish second league (Allsvenskan) most valuable player and forward of the year in 2016-17 after leading the league in points (25g-32a-57pts), tying for second in assists, and for third in goals.

The 6-foot-5, 214-pound center split time with Farjestad’s junior and Swedish Hockey League clubs is 2014-15 and 2015-16, captaining the junior squad in 2014-15.”

This kid looks very promising. I am hearing that even at 6’5″ and 214 lbs he plays with the speed and skill of a smaller player. There is also a rumor that he was deciding between the Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and Nashville. They say he visited Nashville during Game 4 against Chicago and that atmosphere made up his mind.

My name is Daniel Jones, I am from the Washington D.C. area originally, but have lived in Nashville, Tn since 1983. I grew up a fan of the Washington Capitals and I am still partial to them. However, I became a day 1 season ticket holder with the Nashville Predators when they arrived. My wife and I have been hardcore Preds fans ever since. Being asked to cover to the Preds for Puck Planet is both a dream and an honor. I hope to do both the website and Predator fans proud.
