This press release comes from the Nashville Predators:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Chris Mueller (KRIHS MEW-luhr) to Milwaukee (AHL).
Mueller, 25 (3/6/86), suited up for two games during his six-day recall, going pointless. He returns to Milwaukee where he leads the team in points (9g-8a-17pts) and is tied for the team lead in goals in 19 games.
It's possible that this move is being made to clear room for Blake Geoffrion to come off Injured Reserve, as it reduces the current Active Roster to 22, one less than the NHL maximum. Geoffrion went on IR after taking a hard shoulder-to-shoulder hit from Ryan Jones in a game against Edmonton on November 28.
