SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers General Manager Jacques Martin announced today that the club has acquired F Nick Tarnasky from the Nashville Predators in exchange for RW/D Wade Belak.

“Nick is a hard working, tough and responsible player who will fit well on our club,” said Martin. “He is an individual that will add speed, grittiness and a physical presence to our line-up each night.”

Tarnasky, 24, played in 11 games for the Nashville Predators this season recording one assist with 17 penalty minutes. For his NHL career, he has appeared in 180 games (Nashville 2008-09 & Tampa Bay 2005-08) scoring 11 goals with 10 assists and 179 PIM. Last year, he played in 80 games for the Tampa Bay Lightning recording 10 points (6-4-10) with 78 PIM.

The Rocky Mountain House, Alberta native was originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning with their 11th choice (287th overall) in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
