6th year, former 1st round draft pick of Nashville Predators in 2005 (#18 overall) defenseman Ryan Parent(3) has over 100 games of NHL experience but none since a couple of seasons ago, 4 games with Vancouver Canucks despite signing a two-year one-way contract with the team.
Ironically he finished the season with a goal and 5 assists, which would have put him on pace for career highs on the scoresheet.
He also have a goal and 6 assists in the NHL.
As an unrestricted free agent approaching 2012/2013, he signed a pto with Norfolk Admirals a couple of weeks into the season.
The 6’2″ 205 lbs. d-man has one assist in 6 games but is a -5 plus/minus.
Admirals must like having the 25-year old on their team though, because they inked him to an spc. Still, it looks to be a smart move on their part.
