Preds send 4 to Milwaukee, including Alexander Sulzer

In what comes as a surprise to many Preds fans (given his one-way contract), defenseman Alexander Sulzer was included in a group of four players assigned to Nashville's AHL affiliate in Milwaukee, as reported by John Glennon of the Tennessean. UPDATE: Glennon's original article indicated 5 players were sent down, the team's press release this afternoon cites just four. The difference is likely that O'Reilly must clear waivers before going.

Triston Grant, Peter Olvecky, and Nolan Yonkman were the other cuts.
