The Penguins and Nick Spaling avoid arbitration hearing agreeing on two-year, $4.4 million deal.

Spaling, 25, was a restricted free-agent who came over with Patric Hornqvist from Nashville in the James Neal trade. He had 13 goals and 19 assists (32 points) in 71 games with the Predators last season. With the Preds, Spaling played on both the power-play and penalty-kill, but will likely see a reduced offensive role on a talented Penguins team.

The Penguins have acquired Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling from Nashville for James Neal.

Spaling, who is a pending a restricted free-agent, had a strong season with the Predators in 2013-14. He goes to Pittsburgh where he will find himself in a third or fourth-line role. If he can repeat the 13 goals and 19 assists (32 points) in 71 games he had last season, the Pens will be more than happy.

The Predators have activated Nick Spaling (lower-body) from injured reserve.

Spaling missed the last five games with a lower-body injury, but will play tonight in Pittsburgh. His return will be overshadowed by the return of Pekka Rinne, but Spaling has been an important player for the Preds this season. He ranks ninth on the team in points with 22 (10G / 12A) and second on the team at plus-2.

Forward Nick Spaling skated this morning. He is on injured reserve and can’t play. It was the first time he skated since the Predators Oct. 29 game against the Anaheim Ducks.

If for whatever reason you own Spaling, keep him on your IR. The versatile forward does have a goal and three points over 10 games making him a fringe option in the deepest of fantasy hockey leagues.
