 NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) _ The agent for Olli Jokinen says the veteran center has signed with the Nashville Predators.
 
Ian Pulver confirmed reports that Jokinen had agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with Nashville.
 
The 35-year-old Jokinen had 18 goals and 25 assists in 82 games this season for the Winnipeg Jets. Jokinen has 317 goals and 423 assists in 1,169 career NHL regular-season games.
 
The addition of Jokinen represents the Predators' latest attempt to boost their offense under new coach Peter Laviolette after ranking 19th in the league with 2.61 goals per game last season and missing the playoffs for a second straight year.
 
The Predators already had acquired forward James Neal in a Friday trade that sent forwards Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling to the Pittsburgh Penguins.
