Predators ink Haula to 1-year, $1.75M pact
Haula was perhaps the top unrestricted free-agent center remaining on the market.
The 29-year-old concluded this past campaign with the Florida Panthers, recording a pair of assists in seven games. The Carolina Hurricanes traded him to Florida in a package that netted them forward Vincent Trocheck on Feb. 24.
Haula has battled injuries over the last two seasons after racking up a career-high 29 goals and 55 points with the Vegas Golden Knights in 2017-18.
The dependable two-way pivot began his career with the Minnesota Wild, who drafted him 182nd overall in 2009. He reunites with good friend and former Wild teammate Mikael Granlund, who re-signed with Nashville on a one-year, $3.75-million contract earlier Wednesday.
