Preds Sign Veteran Forward Jamie Lundmark
Instant Analysis
On paper, Jamie Lundmark appears earmarked for Milwaukee – and with AHL veterans Dave Scatchard and Ben Guite gone, the Ads have a need for a veteran to help mentor and lead the deep group of young forwards – but that might be selling Lundmark short. During his last two seasons in Calgary he skated on lines with the likes of Jarome Iginla, Todd Bertuzzi, Mike Cammalleri, Olli Jokinen. And he saw post-season action during the Flames 2009 playoff run.

Also factor in Coach Trotz’s history of letting on-ice performance make the roster decisions during Training Camp. Joel Ward wasn’t “on the radar” for most pundits in August 2008, but became a regular in ‘08-09; same could be said for Ben Guite & Teemu Laakso last summer, yet both played in the Preds Opening Night win. Lundmark has the skill and experience to make that type of impression at Camp this year.

Training Camp should be extremely competitive, especially among the forwards. With Lundmark, 19 forwards are expected to be in Camp that skated in at least 20 games in the NHL last season, not including recently signed European stars Jonas Andersson and Linus Klasen (both of whom are expected to get a long, serious look in Training Camp). That’s an impressively deep competition for the final roster spots.

Nashville, Tenn. (July 16, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed center Jamie Lundmark (JAY-mee LUHND-mahrk) to a one-year, two-way contract worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

Lundmark, 29 (1/16/81), split the 2009-10 season between the Calgary and Toronto organizations, posting nine points (5g-4a) in 21 games with the Flames and 21 points (9g-12a) in 32 games with their AHL affiliate in Abbotsford before being claiming on waivers by the Leafs on Feb. 16. He posted three points (1g-2a) in 15 outings with Toronto. In 295 NHL games with the New York Rangers, Phoenix, Calgary, Los Angeles and Toronto since 2002, the Edmonton, Alta., native has 99 points (40g-59a). The 6-0, 197-pounder has 227 points (88g-139a) in 306 American Hockey League games as well.

Selected ninth overall by the New York Rangers in the 1999 Entry Draft, Lundmark earned bronze medals with Canada at both the 2000 and 2001 World Junior Championships, pacing the Canadian squad in points in his second appearance at the tournament (4g-3a, 7gp). His junior career with Moose Jaw and Seattle (WHL) from 1998-2001 saw him amass 216 points (96g-120a) in 159 contests, being named to the CHL All-Rookie Team and WHL East Second All-Star Team in 1999, and to the WHL West First All-Star Team in 2001.
