Cody McLeod amassed 17 penalty minutes in Game 3 against Anaheim.
McLeod picked up a fighting major, an instigator and a misconduct after he fought Ducks forward Jared Boll. Boll had a big hit on Harry Zolnierczyk, but McLeod's undisciplined timing nearly hurt his team dearly. Anaheim scored the go-ahead goal on the power play, but Nashville scored twice in the third to take a 2-1 series lead. "What he did, our guys appreciate his toughness and response," coach Peter Laviolette said. "In the end we ended up winning the hockey game, so we're not talking about it." May 17 - 9:08 AM

Cody McLeod netted the game-winning goal in Game 3 on Sunday afternoon against St. Louis.

He scored early in the second period on a nice redirect that handcuffed Blues goalie Jake Allen and then he scored on the rebound. "Just tried to send it back to the net and create a scramble, and luckily it went in," he said. McLeod has played in the last three playoff games for the Predators after he didn't see any action in Round 1 against Chicago.

Cody McLeod had quite the debut for the Predators during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

Not only was it his Preds debut, it was his first game against the only other club he's ever known - and he scored! He also fought Jarome Iginla, leaving him just a helper shy of the Gordie Howe hat trick. McLeod now has two goals and 57 PIMs this season.

The Nashville Predators have acquired Cody McLeod from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Felix Girard.

McLeod has a goal and 52 penalty minutes in 28 contests this season. He's a veteran enforcer that will bolster the Predators' fourth line, but shouldn't be counted on to do more than that. He comes with a $1,333,333 annual cap hit through 2017-18, but the Avalanche will be covering 40% of his salary and cap cost.
Jan 13 - 11:54 AM

Cody McLeod wishes he had a bigger role with the Avalanche.

"Hundred percent, hands down," McLeod said. "We’re professionals and it’s a privilege to play in the NHL. But I feel like I can still play and contribute more than what I’m getting right now. It’s more frustrating that we’re losing, and the way we’re losing hockey games. I wish I was more part of it." McLeod has been dressed for just 24 of 36 games so far and when he has played he's logged just 5:56 minutes per contest. He has a goal and 45 penalty minutes this season.
