The Nashville Predators have traded defenseman Scott Hannan to the San Jose Sharks for a conditional 7th round pick. Hannan will return to the team where he started his career with and played for from the 1998-99 season through 2006-07.
Hannan is 34 and signed a one year deal during the summer. However, because of his lack of play as of late, Hannan found himself a 7th or 8th defenseman on the Predators' roster. Hannan suffered an upper body injury March 17 in Edmonton during the first period. He was then placed on injured reserve and has yet to return.
The British Columbia native played in 29 games and had a -11. His offensive production was absent as he posted only one assist.
