No, it is not the movie director, Michael Moore. It is the hockey player. Unfortunately, he prefers the name Mike Moore. The Predators have sign Moore to a two-way contract worth $550,000 in the NHL and $105,000 in the AHL. Read the press release from the Nashville Predators after the jump.

Nashville, Tenn. (July 3, 2012) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has signed free agent defenseman Mike Moore to a one-year, two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

Moore, 27 (12/12/84), has spent that past four seasons in the San Jose organization, posting 20 points (4g-16a) and 85 penalty minutes in 62 games with its AHL affiliate, the Worchester Sharks, in 2011-12. In 254 career AHL games, the Calgary, Alta., native has 72 points (14g-58a) and 365 penalty minutes since 2008. The former captain of both Worchester (2010-11) and Princeton University during his senior season (2007-08) has also appeared in six NHL games with the Sharks in 2010-11, notching a goal and seven penalty minutes.

The 6-1, 201-pound blueliner spent four seasons at Princeton from 2004-08, posting 52 points (14g-38a) and 154 penalty minutes in 121 games. In 2007-08, he led the Tigers to a ECAC title, being named First-Team All-America and the conference’s Best Defensive Defenseman.
