Predators Sign Free Agent Forward Josh Gratton
Nashville, Tenn. (July 9, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with free-agent forward Josh Gratton.

Gratton, 25 (9/9/82), has played 67 career National Hockey League games with Phoenix and Philadelphia since 2005-06, notching three points (2g-1a) and 237 penalty minutes. The 6-2, 214-pound left wing posted American Hockey League offensive career highs during the 2007-08 season, amassing 26 points (11g-15a) in addition to 196 penalty minutes in 58 games with San Antonio (38 gp) and Hartford (20 gp). The Brantford, Ont., native has also won an AHL Calder Cup, notching six points (3g-3a) and 78 penalty minutes in 21 playoff games with the Philadelphia Phantoms in 2004-05.

Originally signed as a free agent by the Flyers prior to the 2004-05 campaign, Gratton’s first full NHL season came in 2006-07, when he ranked second in the NHL and first on Phoenix in penalty minutes (188) and earned the club’s Man of the Year Award.
