Preds Ink Notre Dame\'s Ryan Thang to Entry Level Contract
Nashville, Tenn. (March 24, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed forward Ryan Thang to a two-year, two-way contract worth $525,000 per season on the NHL level and $55,000 per season on the American Hockey League level.

Thang, 22, recently completed his four-year collegiate career at the University of Notre Dame, ranking second on the team in both points (23) – for the third time in four seasons – and goals (9), while serving as captain in his senior season. After the conclusion of Notre Dame's season, Thang signed an AHL contract with the Milwaukee Admirals for the remainder of the '09-10 campaign. He made his pro debut for the Ads on March 20 and picked up his first AHL point with an assist on the game-winning goal March 23 against Texas. Through his first three AHL game, Thang has one assist and a +2 rating in helping the Admirals to a 3-0-0 mark.

As a sophomore in 2007-08, the Edina, Minn., native helped the Fighting Irish become the lowest-seeded team in tournament history to reach the NCAA National Championship Game, pacing them in goals (18) and game-winning goals (5), while ranking second in points (32). The 5-11, 189 pounder also led the Irish in goals (20) as a freshman in 2006-07.

Nashville’s fourth choice, 81st overall (third round) in the 2007 Entry Draft, Thang amassed 115 points (57g-58a) in 159 NCAA games. He will report to the American Hockey League’s Milwaukee Admirals for the remainder of the 2009-10 season.
