Former Flyers defenseman Ryan Parent has signed a 2-year, $1.85 million contract with the Nashville Predators.

Parent was sent back to Nashville in June in exchange for the rights to Dan Hamhuis and a conditional draft pick.

Hamhuis could not agree to terms with the Flyers shortly after the deal and was flipped to Pittsburgh during the NHL draft for a 2011 third-round pick. When Hamhuis and Pittsburgh could not reach a contract he became an unrestricted free agent and eventually signed with Vancouver.

Parent initally joined the Flyers from Nashville in the Peter Forsberg trade in 2007. Parent struggled with injuries and had three points and 20 penalty minutes in 48 games last season.
