On July 1st, the Nashville Predators inked AHL MVP to a one year contract, which adds some much-needed depth to their lineup.

After spending most of his career splitting time between the AHL and NHL, it seems like he has finally found a home with the Nashville Predators.

The 27 year old started his career with the Montreal Canadiens, basically spending half of his games in the AHL and half of his games with the big club, basically being on the fringe of being an NHL talent.

He would find himself in the same situation in Vegas, as he only spent six games on the Golden Knights roster, but he had quite the season at the AHL level.

Carr scored 30 goals and 41 assists for 71 points in 52 games, which is very impressive for the grit and grind player that Daniel Carr is.

He might not be able to replicate these numbers for the Nashville Predators, but it does show that he may be too good of a player to just have stocked in the AHL.

He could be a massive asset for the Predators, as they seemingly deal with injuries every year *knocks on wood* and adding another depth piece certainly wouldn’t hurt at all.

He is a guy that can bring energy to the lineup when needed, as he plays with passion, battles hard and is not afraid to throw the body around.

He could be a glue guy in the room for the Predators and he can lead by example with his passionate on ice play.

After all, he’s been fighting to land a permanent spot in the NHL, so if he can find that with the Predators I can see him taking that opportunity and running with it.
