In the least surprising news of the day, the Nashville Predators have returned Chris Mueller to Milwaukee. This brings them back down to 22 on the Active Roster, with Patric Hornqvist and Brian McGrattan on Injured Reserve.
The Predators just issued the following:
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), did not dress for Nashville during its 3-1 victory over Vancouver last night after being recalled earlier in the day.
Once the roster limit is lifted after the Trade Deadline, we could see him back up here as an emergency option. The Milwaukee Admirals might not even make the AHL playoffs, so he would be available.
