NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators have signed forward Rich Clune to a two-year, $1.7 million contract, extending his deal through the 2015-16 season.

General manager David Poile announced the deal Wednesday. Clune will make $850,000 in 2014-15 and 2015-16

Clune, 26, had nine points in 47 games this season and ranked fourth in the NHL with 113 penalty minutes, the first Predator to top the 100-minute mark in four seasons. The Toronto native ranked sixth in the NHL with 159 hits and tied for second with 13 major penalties.

Nashville originally claimed Clune off waivers Jan. 13, and the 5-foot-9, 220-pound left wing has 11 points and 139 penalty minutes in 61 career NHL games.
