Milwaukee, WI - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/GM David Poile announced today that the team has signed goaltender Kasimir Kaskisuo (kaz-AH-mear kass-KA-soo-oh) to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level and $75,000 at the AHL level for the 2020-21 season.

Kaskisuo made his NHL debut with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Nov. 16, 2019 at Pittsburgh and appeared in 27 games with the AHL's Toronto Marlies in 2019-20, his fourth full professional season.

Undrafted, the Vantaa, Finland, native spent his youth hockey career in the Jokerit Helsinki program before moving to North America to play for the NAHL's Minnesota Wilderness in 2013-14. He then played two seasons of college hockey for the University of Minnesota Duluth and broke several school goaltending records, including career goals-against average (2.10) and save percentage (.920). During his sophomore season, Kaskisuo recorded a 1.92 goals-against average, setting the Bulldogs single-season record, and tied the school's shutout record with five en route to a spot on the NCHC's Honorable Mention All-Star Team.

The Admirals 2020-21 season schedule has not yet been released, but will not start before December 4.
