Another former team captain, Jason Arnott, comes in at No.2 on our top centers list. He only spent four seasons with the Predators, but he made a big impact in a short amount of time.
The Edmonton Oilers drafted Arnott in 1993, beginning his 18-year NHL career. Before the 2006-2007 season, Arnott signed with the Predators as an unrestricted free agent and was one of the biggest free agent moves in team history to that point.
Arnott’s best season with the Predators came in 2007 when he registered a career-high 72 points. That same year he also managed to tie his career-high in assists and goals.
In 2010, Arnott was traded by Nashville to a previous team he had played for and won a Stanley Cup, the New Jersey Devils. Before retiring in 2013, Arnott also played for Washington and St. Louis.
Arnott held a Nashville Predators team record for most goals scored in a season with 33. That record held for ten years. Viktor Arvidsson surpassed Arnott with 34 goals during the 2018-2019 season.
