Nashville Goalie Enters NHLPA Assistance Program

The NHL and the NHLPA announced on Monday that Nashville Predators goaltender Connor Ingram has entered the league's player assistance program.

The program is in place for a number of reasons including helping players and their families through tragedy, help with battling addictions, mental health, and a variety of other treatments.

Ingram is a 23-year-old goalie who was selected in the 3rd round back in 2016 by the Tampa Bay Lightning. The Predators signed Ingram to a three-year contract worth just over $2 million total this past offseason, which in part, was a move to help protect Juuse Saros from the expansion draft next offseason.

Ingram has yet to appear in an NHL game but has put up impressive numbers in the AHL and overseas.

We wish him nothing but the best!
