NASHVILLE (AP) — The Nashville Predators have signed forward Eeli Tolvanen of Finland, the 30th pick overall last year, to an entry-level contract, adding the talented 18-year-old to a roster already sitting atop the NHL.

General manager David Poile announced Thursday that the immigration and other paperwork had been completed with Tolvanen agent Jay Grossman in Nashville to finalize the last details. Tolvanen skated with the Predators at their morning skate and then talked with reporters.

Tolvanen spent two years in the United States Hockey League with the Sioux City Musketeers before opting to go to home to play for Jokerit in Kontinental Hockey League. With 36 points, he set the KHL scoring record for an 18-year-old. He also played for Finland in the 2018 Winter Olympics.
