Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - The Nashville Predators have signed forward Patric Hornqvist to a five-year, $21.25 million contract.

Hornqvist had four goals and 10 assists in 24 games this season.

"As we build towards the 2013-14 season and beyond, re-signing Patric Hornqvist was an off-season priority," Predators general manager David Poile said. "Since joining the Predators, he has become -- and will remain -- an integral member of our core group. Patric is everything we talk about as a Predator -- he is relentless in going to the net and willing to pay the price to score goals, has a terrific work ethic and is a quality person who is respected on and off the ice. Patric is just entering the prime of his career. He has led our team in goal-scoring in two of the last four seasons and we are looking forward to him being a significant part of the Predators' on-ice success in the years to come."

The native of Sweden was Nashville's seventh-round pick in the 2005 draft. He's totaled 84 goals and 79 assists in 287 games since cracking the lineup in the 2008-09 season.
