Scott Hannan has returned to the San Jose Sharks.
The Nashville Predators have traded the 34-year-old defender to the Sharks in exchange for a conditional 2013 seventh-round draft pick. The pick would become a sixth-rounder in the event Hannan plays in one playoff game this season.
Hannan has registered one assist and a minus-11 rating in 29 games with the Predators this season. He is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at season's end after signing a one-year, $1 million deal with the Predators prior to this season.
