Blame it on injuries or attribute it to a strong training camp, but either way, Simon Moser defied expectations by earning a roster spot with the Nashville Predators. A one-year, two-way contract came with it, according to his agent and TVA’s Renaud Lavoie.

Lavoie reports that it’s worth $550K at the NHL level.

The Predators might not have kept Moser around if Viktor Stalberg didn’t get sidelined for up to a month with a shoulder injury. Even so, some may argue that Moser is taking opportunities away from promising players such as prospect Taylor Beck.

On the Forecheck points out that Moser, 24, scored two goals and fired seven shots on goal in five preseason games. Moser scored 44 points in 35 games in Switzerland last season.

    That’s a low risk/potentially high gain deal for Nashville.
    Then it’s bad news for SC Bern in Switzerland, where he had a contract with an opt-out clause for the NHL. They would really need him.
