Flyers trade Wayne Simmonds to Predators

Philadelphia Flyers right wing Wayne Simmonds has been traded to the Nashville Predators.

Nashville sent forward Ryan Hartman to the Flyers for Simmonds along with a conditional 2020 draft pick.

Simmonds is on pace for a sixth straight season with at least 20 goals, and five of his 16 goals have come on the power play. Nashville's leading scorer this season on the man advantage has been Filip Forsberg with five goals.

Hartman cost Nashville a first-round pick a year ago when acquired from Chicago. Nashville signed him to an extension through this season, but Hartman has only 10 goals and 20 points in 64 games after shoulder surgery during the last offseason.

The Predators also added Mikael Granlund from Minnesota earlier Monday in exchange for forward Kevin Fiala.
