Middle Tennessee native Blake Geoffrion signs with Preds

In a fantastic moment for Middle Tennessee youth hockey and the Nashville community as a whole, Brentwood, TN native Blake Geoffrion has signed a two-year ELC with the Predators!!!

Quote:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed 2010 Hobey Baker Memorial Award winner and Brentwood, Tenn., native Blake Geoffrion to an entry-level contract. Geoffrion is the first Tennessee native drafted by an NHL team (56th overall by the Predators in the 2006 Entry Draft) and first to sign an NHL contract.

I look forward to watching him continue to develop and see him making the Nashville roster full-time by the start of the 2011-12 season...

I wonder how a Geoffrion ended up being born in Tennessee of all places? I'd have thought Florida or something. But good for him!

He signed the deal at Granberry elementary school in Brentwood, which is the school he attended. Pretty cool stuff.

He actually was born in Plantation, FL, but he spent most of his life here, developed in the Nashville youth hockey system, and considers himself a Tennessean. Kind of like Tyler Myers being born in Texas, but considering himself Canadian (minus the whole changing of nationalities thing).

Good player, but I wonder why they didn't get him signed to 3 year deal.

Has to do with his age. He'll be re-signed next summer after his current contract expires. He's currently with Milwaukee in the AHL...

Length of entry level contracts are set by the CBA, not by choice
