The second day of the 2015 NHL Draft has started up and should be a busy day for the Nashville Predators who didn’t have a first rounder yesterday. Their first selection comes in the second round with the fifty-fifth overall selection, Iakov Trenin.

Trenin is a native of Chelyabinsk, Russia who played for Gatineau Olympiques of the QMJHL last season. He scored 67 points (18 goals, 49 assists) in 58 games – along with 34 penalty minutes and a plus/minus rating of +17. Prior, he played for his hometown club Belye Medvedi Chelyabinsk. He is 18-years old and can play both left wing and center.

This makes back-to-back years where the Predators have selected a Russian forward in the second round. They drafted Vladislav Kamenev with the forty-second overall selection of the 2014 NHL Draft.
