Viktor Arvidsson Wikipedia
Viktor Arvidsson (born 8 April 1993) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player who is currently playing for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected by the Nashville Predators in the fourth round, 112th overall, at the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Arvidsson previously played in his native Sweden, winning the Swedish Championship twice with Skellefteå AIK in the Swedish Hockey League. On 15 July 2014, Arvidsson signed a three-year entry level contract with the Predators.
On 20 March 2015, the Nashville Predators recalled Arvidsson from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League under emergency conditions, after Colin Wilson suffered a lower-body injury in practice on 19 March 2015. Arvidsson made his NHL debut with the Nashville Predators on 21 March 2015, playing 12 minutes and 52 seconds and recording 3 shots on goal, 1 hit, and 1 takeaway, in a 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
On 8 October 2015, Arvidsson scored his first NHL goal against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes, a goal that eventually proved to be the game-winner.
He scored his first career Stanley Cup playoff goal on 9 May 2016 in overtime of Game 6 of the Western Conference Semi Finals against the San Jose Sharks to force the series to a deciding seventh game.
During his breakout 2016–17 season, Arvidsson scored his first career hat trick, including a short-handed marker, in a 7-4 loss to the Florida Panthers on 11 February 2017.
On 22 July 2017, the Predators re-signed Arvidsson to a seven-year, $29.75 million contract with an annual average of $4.25 million, avoiding arbitration.
