Nashville Predators restricted free agent and Swiss-born forward Simon Moser will begin the new hockey season with SC Bern in the National League A, according to SwissHockeyNews.ch. The team retained the forwards rights after he signed his NHL entry-level deal prior to the 2013-14 season.
The 25-year-old "is fully integrated into their practicing and game operations until further notice."
His contract with Bern does include an NHL out-clause in effect until Nov. 15, meaning he is free to leave the club in the event that he is able to reach a deal with the Predators prior to that time.
Moser recorded eight goals and 18 assists in 48 AHL games and one goal and one assist in six NHL games last season. He rejected Nashville's qualifying offer earlier in July and is seeking a higher minor-league salary from the Predators.
