The Nashville Predators are starting their offseason a little earlier than they expected, after being eliminated by the Winnipeg Jets in the second round. Now they have to face the tough decisions of who to bring back, including those who are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents.A Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reportsA that it is unlikely thatA Alexei Emelinwill be back with the team in 2018-19, and that theya€™ve already made the decision to not offer a contract toA Scott Hartnell. Both players will become UFAs on July 1st.



Emelin was brought in last summer in a trade from the Vegas Golden Knights, after the team had selected him in the expansion draft. Nashville sent a third-round pick back to the Golden Knights, adding Emelin to help while they dealt with an injury toA Ryan Ellis. Unfortunately, Emelin wasna€™t all that effective in his one season in Nashville and would see his minutes reduced dramatically in the postseason. In 76 regular season games he registered just nine points, but did continue to be a physical presence racking up 181 hits (second on the team to onlyA Austin Watson).
