The Nashville Predators added some defensive depth on Monday, signing journeyman blueliner Bryan Rodney to a one-year, two-way deal worth $550,000 at the NHL level.

Rodney, 29, has appeared in 34 career NHL contests after catching on with the Carolina organization in 2008-09. His best season came with the ‘Canes in 2009-10, when he scored 11 points in 22 games, scoring his first and only NHL goal.

The former OHL London standout’s last NHL game came in 2011-12 with Edmonton. He spent the 2013 campaign with Los Angeles’ AHL affiliate in Manchester, scoring 15 points in 44 games.

Rodney’s most likely headed for AHL Milwaukee, but does have a chance of cracking the Nashville roster next season — the club only has seven defensemen under contract for next season, and there are still question marks around youngsters Seth Jones, Ryan Ellis, Mattias Ekholm and Victor Bartley.

    The only way Poile would trade you Weber is for the guy in your username.
