The Nashville Predators have sent Blake Geoffrion back to the AHL, after last night's callup for winger Gabriel Bourque, and they've also confirmed the news from last night that Kevin Klein has been moved to Injured Reserve. The following just arrived from the team:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Blake Geoffrion to Milwaukee (AHL) and placed defenseman Kevin Klein on injured reserve.
Geoffrion, 23 (2/3/88), has three assists in 22 games for the Predators this season, and one assist in three games for the Admirals.
Klein, 27 (12/13/84), has missed the past four games due to illness.

This season certainly hasn't gone well so far for Boomer, as he's struggled to earn more than a 4th-line role and battled injuries along the way. All eyes will be on Bourque as he plays in his first NHL game tonight against Minnesota.
