    Steve Begin finds new home in Nashville

    Steve Begin, Boston Bruins, Nashville Predators, NHL, 2010-11 NHL season, free-agents, NHL signings, hub of hockey, the hub of hockey, Boston Bruins roster, Boston Bruins ticketsRDS.ca has reported earlier this morning that former Boston Bruins center Steve Begin has signed a one-year deal with the Nashville Predators, reported to be worth $550,000.

    Nashville, with a  3-0-2 record, sits second in the Central Division and fourth overall in the Western Conference. The Preds also have an abundance of money (more than $9M according to capgeek.com) remaining against this year’s salary-cap.

    Begin, 32, has been an unrestricted free-agent since his one-year deal in Boston expired on on July 1. Begin was drafted 40th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. The Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada, native is a vertern of 486 career NHL games, 52-48-100 totals and 535 penalty minutes. Last year in Boston, the gritty center posted 5-9-14 totals with 53 PIM and 100 shots on goal.

    One of my favorite players to talk to in the locker room, it’s great to see a great guy get another shot this NHL season.
