You can scratch another potential arbitration case off the docket.

TSN’s Darren Dreger reports Nashville has re-signed forward Nick Spaling to a one-year, $1.5 million deal. The two sides were set to head to arbitration on Thursday, but get to avoid that potential unpleasantness now.

Last season, Spaling had nine goals and four assists in the lockout shortened season. His goal total was one shy of his career-high set the season previous.

As a third line type of player, he’s turned into a valuable performer for the Predators. If that offensive production can continue to improve, he can count on seeing another raise next summer.

    I would be excited to have him back for the PK, but Nashville’s bottom six is incredibly crowded.

    That also assumes they have a top six, but that’s another conversation.
