Simon Moser's agent Georges Mueller, reported on Twitter Sunday afternoon that his client has signed a one-year entry level deal with the Nashville Predators. Moser attended the 2013 Predators' training camp on a tryout contract. Due to hard work and determination by the Swiss forward, he was able to survive the cuts and land an NHL contract.
The twenty-four-year-old played in the Swiss-A League for Langnau last season, totaling ten goals, eleven assists in thirty-one games. Moser did sign a two-year contract this summer with Bern, but did have an opt out clause if he was able to sign an NHL deal.
Contract details have yet to be announced by the Predators, but it is likely going to be within the $850,000 – $1,000,000 range — a very affordable option with injuries to Filip Forsberg, Patric Hornqvist and Viktor Stalberg.
UPDATED: Moser signed a one-year, two-way entry-level contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the AHL level. After signing the contract, he was assigned to the Milwaukee Admirals.
