NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators have signed their top goal scorer, forward Patric Hornqvist, to a US$9.25 million, three-year contract.

Hornqvist, 23, is Nashville's first draft pick to score 30 goals, and he led the team with his 30 goals last season. That also marked the fourth highest total in franchise history.

Hornqvist, from Sollentuna, Sweden, tied the franchise record and tied for second in the NHL with eight game-winning goals. He led the Predators, who announced the deal on Tuesday, with 10 power-play goals and finished tied for the team lead with 51 points off a franchise-record 275 shots in the season.

A seventh-round draft pick in 2005, the five-foot-11, 186-pound forward led Nashville skaters with a plus-18 rating.
