What’s going on with Mattias Ekholm?

Two big contracts loomed over the heads of Nashville Predators management over the offseason. First, the star forward of the team, Filip Forsberg, has a contract that is ending after the 2021-22 season. He will be an unrestricted free agent, and although there’s still time to re-sign him, his future is very vague.

The other contract that management needed to worry about completing was for star defenseman Mattias Ekholm. The deadline to sign him to an extension was the beginning of the season, as he did not want to worry about negotiations as everything was going on.
