Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Monday that the club has signed forward Filip Forsberg to a six-year, $36 million contract. Forsberg will make $6 million each season from 2016-17 to 2021-22.

We have full confidence that he will continue to blossom into one of the top players in the world.

This is just another example of our ownership group's commitment to the franchise, our fans and the entire community to build a team that can reach our ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup."
