Nashville Predators assign Cody Franson to Milwaukee

From the Nashville Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned defenseman Cody Franson to Milwaukee (AHL).

Franson, 22 (8/8/87), ranks seventh among rookie defensemen in points, with seven (2g-5a) in 24 games since making his NHL debut on Oct. 17 at Washington. He also leads the Predators, and is tied for fourth among rookie defensemen in plus/minus (+5). Nashville's third choice, 79th overall (third round), in the 2005 Entry Draft, Franson recorded his first career NHL point/assist on Oct. 21 at Boston and scored his first NHL goal the following night in a 6-5 overtime victory at Ottawa. The Sicamous, B.C., native started the 2009-10 season with the Admirals, posting two points (1g-1a) in the club's first three games.

This is a bit of an odd move, considering the four-game week that the Predators have coming up (Monday @ Columbus, Tuesday vs. Tampa Bay, Thursday @ Edmonton and Saturday @ Calgary). Franson has played well in the role he's been given; Alexander Sulzer has been no slouch either, but perhaps this move is being made to keep the roster number down as low as possible, ahead of a callup to replace Jordin Tootoo on a short-term basis. We won't hear until Monday what's going on with him.
