NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have claimed forward Marek Svatos off waivers from the St. Louis Blues.

The Predators announced the move Wednesday and Nashville needs the extra body. The Predators have a handful of players out with injuries, including forwards Steve Sullivan and David Legwand.

Svatos has played 316 career NHL games, all with Colorado between 2003 and 2010. He had a career-high 32 goals and 50 points in the 2005-06 season.

The five-foot-eight, 187-pound right-winger started this season in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League before signing a one-year deal with the Blues on Tuesday.
