The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Jeremy Lauzon to a four-year, $8 million extension. The deal will carry a cap hit of $2,000,000 per season.

Lauzon, 25, was acquired in a trade with the Seattle Kraken back in March for a Second Round pick in 2022. He played 13 games during the regular season for the Predators scoring one goal while averaging 17:06 in ice time. Lauzon played in three out of the Predators four playoff games. He had 2 goals and 5 assists in 66 games with both teams during the 2021-2022 season.
"When we acquired Jeremy back in March, we felt he was a player with a bright future who would help solidify our blueline moving forward, so we are excited to have him remain with the Predators," general manager David Poile said in a news release.

"Jeremy jumped right into our lineup with his physical style of play and fits the identity that we like to bring each night. At just 25 years old, he's helped us further reach our goal of getting younger and he is thrilled about the opportunity to continue to improve and develop with our organization and in the city of Nashville."

"Nashville is the place I wanted to be, so I am thankful and fortunate to stay with this city and the Predators for the next few years. As a defenseman who likes to play with physicality, I love the identity our team brings each game, and knew this was a group I would fit in with right away. My teammates and the entire organization made me feel welcome from the day I arrived, and I'm looking forward to some stability and a chance to help our team that's on the rise and is heading in the right direction,"
Lauzon said in the same release.
