Cody McLeod will make his Predators debut against the only team he knew prior, the Avalanche.

The veteran winger will skate to the right of Derek Grant and Calle Jarnkrok on Nashville's fourth line. Through 28 games he has 50 hits and 52 PIMs, making him a valuable piece to anyone needing a boost in the physical department.

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.

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.

Cody McLeod got his first goal of the season early in the first period, but Colorado was defeated 6-2 by the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

McLeod spent only 5:25 on the ice, which was the least of all Colorado skaters, but he managed to open the scoring and erase the goose egg from his goal statistic. Last year, he scored eight goals in 82 games for the Avs, so he is going to have to pick up the pace to match that total.

Cody McLeod will be scratched against the Blackhawks on Friday.

A night after picking up seven PIMs and skating just eight shifts for a total of 3:58, the veteran will watch from the stands just as he's done much of the season. He has no points with 30 hits and 45 PIMs in 22 games this season, and has averaged just 6:01 of ice time per game.

Cody McLeod will tag in for the injured Blake Comeau in Sunday's game with St. Louis.

Through three games so far this season the veteran pugilist has just a fight and three hits to his credit. Unfortunately that's just not enough production even in a reverse league.

Cody McLeod and Eric Gelinas will be scratched against Minnesota on Saturday night.

It's beginning to appear that neither McLeod nor Gelinas have much of a role with the team, as they've combined for just seven games play thus far. Until that changes, we wouldn't expect much from either player.

Cody McLeod and Eric Gelinas will be scratched against Chicago on Thursday night.

After playing in the last four games in place of Fedor Tyutin, Gelinas picked up a helper with four PIMs and little else in that time. McLeod meanwhile hasn't played in two weeks now.
