The Nashville Predators have signed defenceman Hal Gill to a two-year, $4 million contract.

The 37-year-old blueliner, who was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday, scored one goal and added 12 assists in 76 games in 2011-12 split between the Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators.

Gill is a veteran of 14 NHL seasons, having played 1,070 games with the Canadiens, Predators, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs and Pittsburgh Penguins.

Originally drafted in the eighth round (207th overall) of the 1993 NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins, Gill won a Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 2009.

The Predators acquired him via trade from Montreal along with a 2013 fifth-round draft pick at the trade deadline in exchange for Blake Geoffrion, Robert Slaney and a 2012 second-round draft pick. He signed a one-year deal with the Canadiens last summer worth $2.25 million.
