Nashville, TN, United States (NewsBahn) - The Nashville Predators inked star winger Filip Forsberg to a six-year, $36-million deal Monday.

Forsberg led the team with 33 goals and 64 points last season, so the team wanted to lock in the 21-year-old Swede.

" Filip is among the most skilled, dynamic talents we've ever had in the organization and is an integral part of our success for the next six years and beyond," Predators GM David Poile said in a statement. "While we have already seen his creativity, hockey sense and puck skills, he has yet to reach the peak of his abilities. We have full confidence that he will continue to blossom into one of the top players in the world.

"This is just another example of our ownership group's commitment to the franchise, our fans and the entire community to build a team that can reach our ultimate goal of winning the Stanley Cup."

He was a restricted free agent, so other teams could have issued offer sheets to the talented youngster starting July 1.
