Predators deal Vokoun to Florida for three picks
false

Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile announced Friday that the club has acquired a first-round selection in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, a second-round selection in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft (No. 58) and a conditional second-round selection in either 2007 or 2008 from the Florida Panthers for goaltender Tomas Vokoun.

“We saw Chris Mason emerge as a No. 1 goaltender in 2006-07 and with full confidence in Chris and Pekka Rinne, we felt as if we could make this move,” said Poile.  “Mason won 24 games for us this past season, starting 21 in a row at one point, and finished with the second-highest save percentage [.925] in the NHL.

“In addition, this trade will help restock our organizational assets and affords our team more payroll flexibility.  We now have two first-round picks in 2008, which is projected to be a strong Entry Draft.

 “Tomas Vokoun seized an opportunity with an expansion franchise, earned the No. 1 goaltending position with our team and has ultimately been a major part of Nashville’s success through our first nine seasons,” said Poile.  “It may be time for a new chapter to begin for both Tomas and the Predators, but his contributions to our franchise, both on and off the ice, have been remarkable.”  

Nashville now holds at least nine picks in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft which begins tonight with the first round at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus and concludes with rounds 2-7 tomorrow. 

Nashville picks in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft:
1st round. – 23
2nd round – 54, 58
3rd round – 81
4th round – 114, 119
5th round – 144
6th round – 174
7th round – 204
