PREDATORS SIGN FORWARD ANDREAS THURESSON TO A ONE-YEAR CONTRACT


Nashville, Tenn. (June 28, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Andreas Thuresson (an-DRAY-uhs TUHR-eh-suhn) to a one-year, two-way contract worth $575,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

Thuresson, 22 (11/18/87), played 22 games with the Predators, and 50 games with the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) in 2009-10. He posted three points (1g-2a) as a rookie, made his NHL debut Oct. 31, 2009 vs. Dallas and notched his first NHL goal in a 2-1 overtime victory on Dec. 31, 2009 at Columbus. The Kristianstad, Sweden native also amassed 33 points (14g-19a) with the Admirals, equaling his 2008-09 goal output in 24 fewer games. Thuresson also led Milwaukee in 2010 Calder Cup Playoff scoring (2g-7a-9pts) and tied for the playoff team lead in assists and penalty minutes (16).

The 6-1, 212-pound right wing was Nashville's seventh choice, 144th overall (fifth round), in 2007 Entry Draft.
I'm sure there's more to follow today...

I know right? I'm tempted to just make an "RFA Monday" thread and toss it all into one.

I like Thuresson. Was youngest player in AHL just a few seasons ago. Gives it his all on every shift and can play at both ends of the rink. Had a very good debut last season. Look forward to seeing his continued growth next year. Probably still a season away from competing for a full-time NHL role. Glad to have him back in the fold...

If we ever decide to part ways with Tootoo, I think he Thuresson could be his replacement. He'll hit anything that moves.

If we get a bunch this afternoon, which I too suspect, I'll merge them all into a thread if need be...

I actually suspect that we'll get one big press release this afternoon with multiple RFA signings...

Glad to see him back. Like someone said, was the youngest Ads player on the team in 07/08, and has improved each season.

He's Smithson's replacement.

RFA's are exactly what you would expect- qualified everyone except Boyd, Grebs and Olvecky. I guess I'm surprised that Diedrich was qualified but Horny, Mi. Santorelli, Franson Parent Laakso and Dekanich all would make sense.

Just made a new post with the list. Preds took a long time to put the press release out today...

He will probably have Pihlstrom level of scoring in the NHL, but afraid of physical hockey? Going to have to disagree on that.
