Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that goaltender Chet Pickard (CHEHT PIH-kuhrd) has been assigned to Milwaukee (AHL). He joined the Predators on Tuesday after the completion of his season with the ECHL's Cincinnati Cyclones.
Pickard, 22 (11/29/89), posted a 14-12-2 record with a 3.12 goals-against average, a .890 save percentage and a shutout with the Cyclones in 2011-12. This is the second time Nashville's second choice, 18th overall (first round), in 2008 Entry Draft has been on the club's active roster - he was recalled on April 27, 2011 and stayed with the team through its Western Conference Semifinals series vs. Vancouver.
Chet got to dress for his first NHL game on Tuesday as he backed up Anders Lindback. As Aaron Sims noted on Twitter, this move helps Milwaukee plug a gap while Jeremy Smith serves a suspension for Sunday's brawl with Rockford.
