The Nashville Predators signed today forward Eeli Tolvanen of Finland, the 30th pick overall last year, to an entry-level contract, adding the talented 18-year-old to a roster already sitting atop the NHL.
Tolvanen spent two years in the United States Hockey League with the Sioux City Musketeers before opting to go to home to play in the Kontinental Hockey League. With 36 points, he set the KHL scoring record for an 18-year-old. He also played for Finland in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Nashville returns to action this evening hosting San Jose at 7 in Bridgestone Arena.
