The following came from the Predators:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Kyle Wilson to Milwaukee (AHL).
Wilson, 26 (12/15/84), suited up for five games during his first stint with the Predators, going pointless and averaging 8:08 of ice time.
Apparently with the games coming up on the schedule, the Preds feel confident in the 20-man lineup they currently have, because this move leaves them with just 20 skaters on the Active Roster, leaving no room for healthy scratches.
That means Brian McGrattan will be a presence in the nightly lineup unless another move is in the works. Can he contribute more than just the odd sideshow brawl on a regular basis? We'll find out soon.
