The Nashville Predators and veteran defenseman Alexandre Carrier are nearing a contract extension, per TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.

Carrier, 27, was set to become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins Monday.

Originally a fourth-round selection in the 2015 draft by Nashville, Carrier boasts a plus-39 career rating with 62 points in 217 games.

The extension would potentially solidify a blue line that also features Roman Josi, Jeremy Lauzon, Dante Fabbro, Spencer Stastney and Luke Schenn ahead of free agency.
