Yip a Predator.

The Nashville Predators have claimed forward Brandon Yip off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Yip had a promising rookie season (19 points in 31 games), but had a disappointing sophomore campaign (22 points in 71 games in 2010-11), and was sidelined for much of this season to arm and groin injuries. He’s scoreless in ten games in 2011-12.
