The Nashville Predators have announced a contract extension for Tyler Gaudet. He will receive a one-year extension that will keep him in the organization for next season.

This deal will pay Gaudet $650K at the NHL level, while just $105K in the minor leagues.

In addition, 25-year old forward was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. He would have qualified for Group VI status.

Gaudet was acquired earlier this season as part of a minor league deal with the Arizona Coyotes, and joined a Milwaukee Admirals team in a checking role for the second half of the season.

Lastly, Gaudet is not a huge scoring threat, but he plays a solid heavy style by showing good defense and forechecking skills. He will help any AHL team.
