The Nashville Predators have re-signed defenseman Yannick Weber to a one-year contract. The contract is worth $650K, the league minimum in 2017-18. Weber would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer, but instead will come back to the team that he just helped get all the way to the Stanley Cup Final.

Weber played in 73 regular season contests with the Predators, but logged an average of fewer than 12 minutes a night. Sheltered extensively along with Matt Irwin, he nonetheless suited up for 22 postseason games for the team.
