The Nashville Predators' call 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.

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.

Jackman has two points and 48 penalty minutes in 33 games this season.
