Nashville also sent a sixth-round pick to Edmonton as part of the deal.

To NASH it's Tyson Barrie, Reid Schaefer, a first this year and a fourth.
The veteran defender still has four seasons remaining on a contract extension he signed with Nashville worth $6.25 million per season.
If it wasn't already obvious, the Predators are in full-blown seller mode.
It's also a busy time for soon-to-be GM Barry Trotz, who will take over for David Poile on July 1.
With this trade the Predators have 21 picks in the first four rounds over the next three seasons.
