Nashville Predators acquire Rasmus Asplund from Buffalo Sabres; sign Dante Fabbro to contract extension

The Nashville Predators have acquired centre Rasmus Asplund from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a 2025 seventh-round draft pick.

Asplund, 25, is a pending arbitration-eligible restricted free agent playing out the final season of a two-year deal with an $825,000 cap hit, due a $918,750 qualifying offer this offseason.

As of this writing, Asplund has eight points in 27 games, though he's mostly known for his stout defensive play.

The Predators have also reportedly signed Dante Fabbro to a one-year contract extension valued at $2.5 million.
