The Preds have announced that they have agreed to term with Triston Grant. Grant has received a one year, 2-way contract. His salary is $475,000 on the NHL level and just $50,000 on the AHL level.

To me this indicates he'll likely play the role of Darcy Hordichuk since his salary is mostly on the NHL level.
