The Nashville Predators have claimed another player off waivers. This time, it’s forward Derek Grant from the Buffalo Sabres.
Grant, 26, has no goals and three assists in 35 games for Buffalo this season. A former fourth-round draft pick of the Ottawa Senators, Grant has played 75 NHL games for the Sens, Flames, and Sabres and is still looking for his first goal.
Grant is a pending unrestricted free agent with a $650,000 cap hit. He’ll join a Predators team that has two wingers, James Neal and Miikka Salomaki, on injured reserve, while another, Colin Wilson, remains day-to-day with an undisclosed ailment.
