The fluctuating roster moves don’t stop there for the Predators, who have a back-to-back slate beginning in St. Louis on Monday and then ending here in Nashville on Tuesday against the Edmonton Oilers.
Eeli Tolvanen was placed on waivers Sunday by the Predators. After being a healthy scratch for the 12th time this season and scoring 4 points in 13 games played Tolvanen is available to be picked up by any other NHL organization.
Overall in 135 games, the 2017 1st round pick has garnered 51 points with the Nashville Predators.
Tolvanen signed a three-year contract with Nashville over the 2021 offseason worth $4.3 million. He’s eligible to be an RFA after the 2023-24 season.
