The Nashville Predators have acquired goaltender Connor Ingram from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft.

Ingram, 22, was an AHL All-Star in 2018-19, going 14-7-0 with a 2.26 goals-against average, a .922 save percentage and six shutouts in 22 appearances with the Syracuse Crunch. He finished the season with Orlando of the ECHL, appearing in 13 regular-season games before helping them reach the second round of the playoffs.

A third-round choice by the Lightning in the 2016 NHL Draft, Ingram has a record of 34-18-2 (2.30, .917) with 10 shutouts in 57 AHL contests over his first two professional seasons.

The native of Imperial, Sask., won a silver medal with Canada at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship.
