The Nashville Predators have selected defenseman Adam Smith with their final selection in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Smith turned 20-years old two weeks ago and split his 2015-16 season between the Newmarket Hurricanes (OJHL) and Bowling Green State University (NCAA). Between the two teams he amassed a combined 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) in 54 games.

The Predators 2016 NHL Draft Class features eight selections and a total of five defensemen taken out of those eight draft picks. It was clear, heading into the draft, that the Predators needed to do some restocking in that position with recent draft years being focused more towards the offense. I say job done and it is going to be a fun time here in Milwaukee seeing which of these young defensemen end up really hitting an extra gear and making an NHL leap in the next few years.
