Preds Trade for Ryan Parent
- Predators send Dan Hamhuis to the Flyers -

A Look Inside the Hamhuis Trade…
Clearly the Preds first choice would have been to re-sign Dan Hamhuis. Proposals were made during the season and conversations continued after the season wrapped up. With July 1 approaching, the Predators reached the conclusion that Hamhuis was likely to test the free agent waters. By trading Hamhuis, Nashville accomplished a couple of key goals, notably the team was able to bring back a young defenseman in
Ryan Parent with NHL experience who is capable of sliding into the lineup from Game 1 next season. Second, the trade likely means Hamhuis will be out of the Conference; in what’s shaping up as a relatively thin free agent class for defensemen, media reports were indicating that several Western Conference playoff teams were readying big offers for Hamhuis. In one move the Preds may have both filled a necessary spot in their defensive corps and kept Hamhuis away from potential playoff rivals.

Nashville, Tenn. (June 19, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired defenseman Ryan Parent from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenseman Dan Hamhuis and a conditional pick in the 2011 Entry Draft.

Parent, 23 (3/17/87), was Nashville’s first pick, 18th overall (first round), in the 2005 Entry Draft, and was sent to Philadelphia on Feb. 15, 2007 in the trade that brought Peter Forsberg to Nashville. He spent his first full season at the NHL level in 2009-10, posting three points (1g-2a) while averaging 14:46 of ice time in 48 games for the Flyers. The Prince Albert, Sask., native also appeared in 17 playoff games during Philadelphia’s run to the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, scoring one goal.

For his career, the 6-3, 198-pound blueliner has played 102 career games at the NHL level. Parent played his first professional contests for the Milwaukee Admirals – Nashville’s primary developmental affiliate in the American Hockey League – during the team’s run to the 2006 Calder Cup Finals. He is slated to become a restricted free agent on July 1.
