Cats send defenseman Brennan to the Preds in RFA swap for forward Bobby Butler

The Florida Panthers have acquired Bobby Butler from the Nashville Predators for T.J. Brennan. Butler, who like Brennan is currently a restricted free agent, joins his fourth organization in three seasons.

Butler was once a promising prospect in the Ottawa Senators organization. After being signed as an undrafted free agent following four seasons at the University of New Hampshire, he helped the Binghamton Senators, Ottawa's AHL affiliate, win the Calder Cup in 2011 with 13 goals in 23 playoff games.

Butler failed to live up to his promising 21-point season (in 36 games) in 2010-11 by scoring five less points (16) in 56 games the following season. The Senators bought out Butler in the offseason, and he signed a one-year, two-way contract with the New Jersey Devils. He spent the lockout with the Albany Devils, scoring 27 points in 37 games. After only 14 games and one goal with the NHL Devils, Butler was placed on waivers and claimed by the Nashville Predators. He scored nine points (3G/6A) in 20 games with the Predators.

Butler played in the 2013 IIHF World Championship for the United States, alongside Nick Bjugstad, scoring three goals and one assist in eight games.
