Nashville Predators Rumors: Tanner Jeannot On The Move

The Nashville Predators have been in the news a ton lately as their management landscape is changing and so to is their roster. After the big news of David Poile retiring and with one trade already complete with the Winnipeg Jets, the Preds announced Sunday night forward Tanner Jeannot will be scratched due to trade-related reasons.

Jeannot is a 25-year-old pesky forward who can play an impactful role on a team's bottom six. The Predators have relied on Jeannot for a checking role mostly this season. He burst onto the scene in 2021-22, playing in 81 games and scoring 24 goals. Meanwhile collecting 130 penalty minutes. 

Jeannot isn't scared to throw hands with the league's toughest players and any contending team would be wise to put an offer in the mix. The pending restricted free agent is under team control and will likely cost a second-round pick or a upper-level prospect to acquire.
