(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — The Nashville Predators on Tuesday matched the 14-year, $110 million offer sheet made by the Philadelphia Flyers for defenseman Shea Weber.
“In tendering an offer sheet to Shea Weber, we were trying to add a top defenseman entering the prime of his career,” Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said in a statement. “With Nashville matching our offer, we wish Shea and the Predators all the best.”
The 26-year-old Weber had 19 goals and 49 points for Nashville last season.
