Preds Extend Qualifying Offers to 5
The Predators extended qualifying offers to five of their restricted free agents, Matt Ellison, Triston Grant, Kevin Klein, Ville Koistinen, and Rich Peverley. The qualifying offers ensure that any other NHL team would have to extend those players an offer sheet and give the Preds the right to match.

Klein and Koistinen spent the entire ’07-08 season with the Predators, while Peverley split the season between the NHL and AHL, skating a regular shift for the Preds down the back stretch of the season and through the playoffs. Ellison and Grant, just acquired from the Flyers organization, were AHL regulars last season.
