The Nashville Predators' decision to buy out Barret Jackman was a "last-minute decision."
"When we got (defenseman P.K.) Subban and then we had talked to Yannick Weber and had a feeling we'd be able to sign him, we just felt that this would be the best thing," Predators GM David Poile said. Nashville freed up roughly $1.3 million in cap space for 2016-17 by making that move, though the Predators will carry an extra $666,666 in 2017-18. Jackman hasn't landed a new contract yet.

Barret Jackman will be bought out by Nashville.

The Predators have placed Jackman on waivers to start that process. This will clear up about $1.3 million in cap space for 2016-17, but in 2017-18 the Predators will have a cap penalty of roughly $667K.

Barrett Jackman picked up 14 PIMs in Friday's 5-2 Game 1 loss to San Jose.

All 14 minutes came after the game ended, which saw a small scrum ensue before each team departed the ice. Jackman was assessed a misconduct plus two separate minors for roughing. His PIMs total outpaced his playing time on the ice (11:22), which ought to give a nice example of his effectiveness during the game.

Barret Jackman will sit for his fifth straight game Wednesday night against Calgary

The 35-year old former Blues standout has dressed in 61 games in 2015-16, adding 69 penalty minutes. On the downside of his career, this five-game window may be a glimpse of more consistent press box appearances. The fantasy impact, if any is minimal.

Barret Jackman will be scratched against the Jets on Tuesday night.

With 69 PIMs, 73 blocks, and 83 hits across 61 games this season, the long timer veteran defender will provide a bit of punch to any lineup. Provided he's playing, of course.

After a one game absence due to an upper body injury, Barret Jackman will return to Nashville's blue line Tuesday night.

Feb 23 - 7:20 PM

Barret Jackman (upper body) isn't expected to play Monday night.

He was injured when he crashed into the end boards during the second period of Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to Los Angeles. Jackman skated on Monday morning, but he didn't have a partner during line rushes so he is considered doubtful.
Feb 22 - 6:24 PM

Barret Jackman is averaging just 14:41 minutes per contest.

Jackman inked a two-year, $4 million contract with the Predators over the summer. He was a nice addition to Nashville at that price, but given how strong the Predators defense already was, the fact that he's being used in a complimentary rather than leading role isn't surprising. Jackman has two points and 48 penalty minutes in 33 games this season.

The Nashville Predators picked up 72 penalty minutes in Saturday's blowout win over Winnipeg.

That's the third highest single-game total in franchise history. Barret Jackman led the team in penalty minutes with 15. He got five minutes for fighting Chris Thorburn and a game misconduct.

The Nashville Predators fired 45 shots on goal, but they were still shut out in Saturday's game against Jake Allen and the St. Louis Blues.

"He’s shown a lot of that over the last couple years," said Predators defenseman Barret Jackman said of Jake Allen. "He’s a great goaltender, he’s very athletic, he’s a lot like (Pekka Rinne), very good at playing the puck. He made some huge saves tonight. Probably after 45 shots, I guess we should have had a couple goals."
