Preds, Yip agree
to 1-year deal
NASHVILLE (AP) — The Nashville Predators have signed forward Brandon Yip to a one-year deal worth $750,000, bringing back a player claimed off waivers in January.
The 27-year-old Yip had seven points in 25 games with the Predators, and he played in all 10 playoff games with two points. The Predators claimed him off waivers from Colorado on Jan. 19.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound right wing has 48 points in 138 career games. He was the 239th pick overall by Colorado in 2004 after helping Boston University win the 2009 national championship.
joins LSU staff
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — New LSU coach Johnny Jones has added former Houston Rockets scout David Patrick to his staff.
Patrick, whose hiring was announced Wednesday, also previously held assistant coaching jobs at St. Mary’s and Nicholls State following a Division I career and four years playing professionally in Australia, England and Spain.
Jones says Patrick’s basketball background will help not only with game-planning and practice, but recruiting.
Patrick was a member of Syracuse’s 1996 Final Four team before transferring to Louisiana-Lafayette, where he played three seasons.
Patrick was born in Bermuda and grew up partly in Australia, where he became a junior national team member.
He moved in 1994 to Baton Rouge, where he played his senior season of high school basketball.
