Teemu Laakso clears waivers, assigned to Milwaukee

Nashville Predators defenseman Teemu Laakso cleared waivers today, per TSN's Bob McKenzie, and it is likely that he will be assigned to the Milwaukee Admirals soon. UPDATE: Yup, he's gone.

With 162 games played for the Ads over the last 3 seasons, he should fit in seamlessly there and continue to be an asset to the organization. At the NHL level, Laakso struggled at times, and spent more time scrambling in the defensive zone compared to the rest of the team's defensemen.

If anything, this move speaks to the confidence that the Predators have in Roman Josi, who has seemed comfortable competing at the NHL level, after missing the opening weeks of the season due to a concussion suffered during training camp.
