NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Nashville Predators have resigned forward Colton Sissons to a seven year, $20 million contract. The deal runs through the 2025-26 season.

“Colton will be an important part of our team for the next seven seasons and we are happy he has made a long-term commitment to our organization and the city the Nashville,” Preds GM David Poile said. “He’s a heart and soul player who is versatile and can fill many important roles on our team, including on the penalty kill and power play. His offensive production has increased each season, and he remains an integral part of our defensive structure down the middle of the ice. Colton is also an up-and-coming leader in our organization, which is something we value strongly.”

Sissons scored a career high 15 goals and 30 points last season in 75 games with the Predators. His +20 plus-minus was tied for sixth-highest by a forward in team history, and he was second on the team with a 53.1% win percent on draws.

Sissons was the 50th pick in the 2012 NHL draft by the Predators.
