On Tuesday announced that the team has matched the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet between the Philadelphia Flyers and defenseman Shea Weber, insuring that the Predators’ captain will remain with the franchise for the next 14 years.
The decision to enter into the largest contract in franchise history was made by all parts of the organization, including ownership, hockey operations and business operations.
The Nashville Predators sign forward Colin Wilson to a 3-year, $6 million contract which will pay him $1.5 million in 2012-13, $2 million in 2013-14 and $2.5million in 2014-15.
Wilson, 22, was selected in the first round, 7th overall, by the Predators in the 2008 NHL Draft.
He set career highs in assists at 20 while scoring 16 goals last season. The six foot-one, 212-pounder also tied for second on the Predators in game-winning goals and fourth on the club in power-play goals this past season.
In 185 career NHL contests since the start of the 2009-10 season Wilson has 39 goals and 45 assists.
