Sergei Kostitsyn and Predators head to arbitration

Nashville Predators’ restricted free agent, Sergei Kostitsyn elects salary arbitration with David Poile. Kostitsyn’s date for the arbitration hearing has not been set, but will be between July 20 through August 4.

Kostitsyn is one of sixteen players the NHLPA announced Thursday afternoon that will head to arbitration. Luckily, Nashville’s captain Shea Weber isn’t on that list after last year’s hearing where he was awarded a one year deal worth $7.5 million.
