Yesterday, the Nashville Predators officially came to terms with Felix Girard on a three-year entry level contract. The Quebec native was drafted by the Preds in the 2013 NHL Draft in the fourth round (ninty-fifth overall).

The 19-year old center just finished his playing time in the QMJHL with Baie-Comeau Drakkar. In four seasons he played in 240 games, scored 142 points (45 goals, 97 assists), amassed 288 penalty minutes, and has a plus/minus rating of +31. In his last two junior seasons he won the Guy Carbonneau Trophy as the QMJHL’s top defensive forward.

In the press release there is no mention of him reporting to Milwaukee. Should I see otherwise, when attending practices today and tomorrow, I will provide an update.

Is this another element to next season’s Admirals group? What do you expect from Felix Girard in the Predators system?

  1. We keep adding players. Who gets to sit? Hopefully not the players that have played their hearts out all season long. Its nice for them to get the experience but now is not the time. We need to win and not have rookies out there. Actually maybe Rodney can permanently sit out. He’s more of a pylon that watches the other team skate passed him. The young D might be able to stop them better than he does. Just my opinion.

  2. I was thinking about this as well yesterday. When I look up and down our roster I get giddy, with the addition of Jarnkrok this is a really good team right down to the new youngsters who I think haven’t looked out of place at all. Assuming everyone is healthy when game one of the playoffs starts it will be interesting to see who sits especially at forward. They way I see it Liambas and Rask could be the odd ones out. I think a pest like Tousignant is a little better overall player than Liambas and though I like Rask I see someone like Wathier in instead for that experience and size. With Pimm and Pendenza in the mix we can’t really go wrong if someone gets hurt. At defense, I’ll admit that I’m no fan of Rodney’s lack of foot speed but I don’t think we’ll see any changes to the back six. If someone falters however I really like Diaby stepping in.
