Predators Claim Marek Svatos On Waivers
Nashville, Tenn. (December 29, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has claimed forward Marek Svatos (MAIR-ehk SVA-tohs) on waivers from St. Louis.

Svatos, 28 (6/17/82), has played 316 career NHL games – all with the Colorado Avalanche – between 2003-10, amassing 164 points (96g-68a) and 207 penalty minutes. The Kosice, Slovakia native is a two-time 25-goal scorer, amassing career highs in goals (32) and points (50) in 2005-06. The 5-8, 187-pound right wing began the 2010-11 campaign with Avangard Omsk of Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, posting eight points (3g-5a) in 19 contests before signing a one-year contract with the Blues on Tuesday. Svatos was originally selected 227th overall (seventh round) by the Avalanche in the 2001 Entry Draft.

The Predators are back in action on New Year’s Eve when they travel to Minnesota to take on the Wild at the Xcel Energy Center (5 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.9 FM The Buzz). They return to Smashville on Sunday for an intra-divisional bout with the Columbus Blue Jackets (102.9 FM The Buzz). Sunday’s game is a special 5 p.m. early start, making the game perfect for families with young children. Tickets are still available for the Preds first game of 2011 and may be purchased at the Bridgestone Arena box office, by calling (615) 770-PUCK (7825) or online via ticketmaster.com or nashvillepredators.com.
