Nashville, Tenn. (November 27, 2008) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired forward Wade Belak from the Florida Panthers in exchange for forward Nick Tarnasky.

Belak, 32 (7/3/76), has appeared in 15 games for the Panthers in 2008-09, recording 25 penalty minutes.
