Ryan Parent is being expected to be a steady performer on the Nashville blueline this season as a depth defender.

"Sometimes when you watch the scrimmages, the less you notice Ryan the better," coach Barry Trotz said. "He is containing people, he is being really efficient. He is not going to be a guy you are going to notice on a scoresheet. You are going to notice him on an ability to kill penalties, notice him to shut down people because of his great mobility." Unfortunately, that won't make him a very attractive option in fantasy leagues, but it should help the Predators keep the puck out of their net.
