Jackman signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Predators on Wednesday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

After 12 years in St. Louis, Jackman will join another franchise for the first time in his career. As was the case during his final few seasons with the Blues, Jackman will be suiting up for one of the league's deeper defensemen ranks, as he'll join a Predators roster that includes All-Stars Shea Weber and Roman Josi and promising youngsters Ryan Ellis and Seth Jones. Those four players figure to shoulder most of the offensive burden from the blue line, leaving Jackman to do what he does best -- agitating opposing forwards and providing sound decision-making in front of his own net.

Jackman recorded an assist and five PIM in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.

It's the first point since the middle of December for the 33-year-old, a drought that isn't all that atypical. Jackman's standing as a third-pairing defender primarily tasked with keeping his goalie clean won't present many scoring opportunities.

Jackman scored his first goal of the year Thursday, a first-period tally in a 6-3 win over the Islanders. He added an assist and went plus-3 with three shots on goal, two blocks and a hit over just 15:42 of ice time.

Jackman's not known for his offense, but he has a three-game point streak going currently and is plus-7 in that span. As the 33-year-old sees intermittent ice time and has historically lacked in offensive production, he retains fairly minimal fantasy value even in leagues that count defensive stats like hits and blocked shots, where he provides solid, but non-elite production.
