The Predators placed Hodgson on waivers Wednesday.
Hodgson has three goals and eight points in 39 games this season. The 25-year-old is averaging 10:44 of ice-time per game, which is currently a career-low.
Advanced metrics paint a much kinder picture for Hodgson so far in 2015-16. Hodgson is currently sporting a 57.3 per cent Corsi for rating and a 52.6 per cent goals for mark (all numbers via war-on-ice.com.)
Nashville signed Hodgson to a one-year, $1.05-million contract on July 1, just days after he was bought out by the Buffalo Sabres.
