Preds sign van Guilder to first NHL contract

The Nashville Predators signed Mark van Guiler to his first National Hockey League contract Monday afternoon. The contract is a two year, two way deal worth $550,000 at the NHL level, $80,000 at the AHL level in the 2013-14 season and $85,000 in 2014-15.

The long time Milwaukee Admiral forward spent four seasons with the AHL affiliate appearing in 238 games totaling 83 points (36g, 47a). 

Van Guilder is a dynamic 6'2" forward with bottom six potential. An interesting fact about "MvG" is during his four year college hockey career playing at the University of Notre Dame, he didn't miss a single game.
