Nashville Predators put Aaron Johnson on waivers

Renaud LaVoie of RDS is reporting that the Nashville Predators have put defenseman Aaron Johnson on waivers, presumably a prelude to his assignment to Milwaukee. This marks an apparent victory for Alexander Sulzer in earning an NHL job as it leaves the Preds with 7 defensemen. I'm sure it also helps that Johnson, unlike Sulzer, has a two-way contract which will pay him less at the AHL level.

This leaves the Nashville roster at 25, meaning that 2 (or 3... or 4) players will still be cut prior to the season opener, which is now just 7 days away!
