NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators signed centre Rich Peverley to a two-year deal and goaltender Pekka Rinne to a one-year contract extension Friday.

The team said that Peverley will be paid US$475,000 at the NHL level and $100,000 at the minor league level in the first year of the contract. In the second year, the 26-year-old will make $500,000. Rinne's extension will pay him $725,000 beginning in 2009-10.

Peverley played in a career-high 33 games for Nashville last season, including all six of the team's playoff series against the Detroit Red Wings.
