NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Nashville Predators have signed defenseman Joe Piskula to a one-year, two-way contract.

The Predators announced the deal Monday.

They traded for Piskula in February in a deal with Calgary, and Piskula split the season in the AHL playing 46 games for Abbotsford and 23 games with Milwaukee. Piskula, 28, has played in 10 career NHL games the last five with Calgary in 2011-12.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound defenseman has played 393 AHL games in six seasons with 74 points and 335 penalty minutes. He helped the Wisconsin Badgers win the 2006 NCAA national championship.
Two-way, so I assume this is Milwaukee/depth. Yet another Dman brought in.

EDIT: Just actually read the article. Apparently he was already our property, but just signed him to an NHL deal.

We got Piskula in the McGrattan trade with Calgary. AHL signing.

Yes, but he was on an AHL deal IIRC. He is now on an NHL. Minor, but worth noting.

No harm in this, just adding defensive depth.

that's incorrect. he was on a two-way NHL deal already. Played a couple of games for CGY at the end of the 11/12 season.
