Viktor Arvidsson will have a new contract by Monday. That much is certain because of the guidelines of salary arbitration, which the Predators forward applied for earlier this month. Arvidsson's hearing is scheduled for Saturday in Toronto, and a third-party decision must be issued within 48 hours if he and the Predators are independently unable to agree to terms. Sportsnet reported Thursday that Arvidsson's side requested $4.5 million ahead of the hearing.
The Predators on Tuesday signed restricted free-agent forward Pontus Aberg to a two-year, $1.3 million contract. The 23-year-old led the Milwaukee Admirals and tied for third among American Hockey League players with 31 goals last season. Limited to 15 NHL games during the regular season because of Nashville's depth on the wings, Aberg boosted his value during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The Predators on Monday signed forward Frederick Gaudreau to a three-year contract. Originally recalled by the Predators to serve as postseason insurance, the team thrust the 24-year-old into Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Anaheim Ducks on May 20. Gaudreau, not overwhelmed by the intense pressure of the situation, won 10 of 14 faceoffs in his playoff debut.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
