Predators Land Shane O'Brien in Deal With Vancouver

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has acquired defenseman Shane O'Brien and forward Dan Gendur from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman Ryan Parent and forward Jonas Andersson.

O’Brien, 27 (8/9/83), appeared in 65 regular-season games for the Canucks a season ago, posting eight points (2g-6a) and 79 penalty minutes, and in all 12 of Vancouver’s playoff games registering three points (1g-2a) and 25 penalty minutes. In 299 career NHL contests with Vancouver, Anaheim and Tampa Bay since the 2006-07 campaign, the 6-3, 224-pound blueliner has 55 points (8g-47a) and 605 penalty minutes. The Port Hope, Ont., native was originally drafted 250th overall (eighth round) by the Ducks in the 2003 Entry Draft held at Bridgestone Arena.

Gendur, 23 (5/21/87), split the 2009-10 season between Victoria and Johnstown of the ECHL, combining for 12 points (2g-10a) in 29 games. As a rookie pro in 2008-09, the 5-11, 190-pound winger posted one goal in 10 games with Manitoba (AHL), and 38 points (9g-29a) in 52 contests with Victoria. A native of Vancouver, B.C., Gendur was selected 206th overall (seventh round) by the Canucks in the 2007 Entry Draft.

Good stuff Preds, anytime you add any kind of toughness is good thing, but, why not just get him off waivers? I guess they wanted to shed Parent.

Preds fans better hope he drops some weight too.

Got a bit too heavy last year, and it really affected his lateral movement turning speed - IMO.

Good, tough defenseman, if he can stay committed to the club.

Oh, he was committed to the club in Vancouver.

The only problem was, that club was the Roxy.

Andersson was on the bubble to get sent down and word was he would pull a eurofit if it happened.

Parent for all the hype, is just average at best so no biggie.

Good will whip SOB into shape in short order if he's carrying a few extra big macs right now.

I like the move. Added toughness is always a plus.
