Nashville Predators assign Blake Geoffrion to Milwaukee

As the Preds continue to trim their roster leading up to the regular season, heralded hometown hero Blake Geoffrion has been assigned to Milwaukee. As a first-year pro he doesn't require waivers, unlike Andreas Thuresson and Teemu Laakso. From the Preds:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forward Blake Geoffrion to Milwaukee (AHL).

The Brentwood native appeared in two of Nashville's first three preseason games, his first NHL games with his hometown team, and will start his rookie professional career in the same state where he won the 2010 Hobey Baker Award and played four seasons with the University of Wisconsin. He became the first Tennessee native to be selected in the NHL Entry Draft when the Predators took him in the second round, 56th overall, in 2006.

Blake has looked good in preseason action, but naturally needs some time at the AHL level before making his NHL debut.
