Nashville Predators assign Dave Scatchard to Milwaukee

From the Nashville Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that forward Dave Scatchard (DAYV SKAT-chuhrd) has been reassigned to Milwaukee (AHL).

Scatchard, 33 (2/20/76), played nine games with Nashville during his recall, posting a pair of assists while leading the team in face-off winning percentage (58%). He played in his first NHL game since Jan. 27, 2007 on Oct. 21 at Boston, and posted his first NHL point since Jan. 7, 2007 at Ottawa the next night.

Scatchard was just caught up in a numbers game, as guys like Jordin Tootoo and J.P. Dumont returned to action. Probably his best work came alongside Colin Wilson and Patric Hornqvist a couple weeks ago, but I wouldn't be surprised to see more of the veteran later on this season.

This also has to be seen as a validation of Andreas Thuresson's play in his four games so far.
