James Mirtle of The Globe and Mail reports the Nashville Predators have signed center Craig Smith to a two-year, $4 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Smith, 23, made his NHL debut last season, with 36 points in 72 games, but was entering the final year of his two-year entry level deal. His new contract, like so many of today’s re-signings, takes effect in 2013-14.
