Milwaukee's Beast - Bruce Bennett
Nashville's ICBM-class enforcer hasn't played in over three weeks, so he's off to get some action with the Milwaukee Admirals.
Since he hasn't played since the first two games of the season, Brian McGrattan is being dispatched to Milwaukee for a conditioning assignment, AKA "speed bag work". Seriously, I doubt he'll do much fighting there, as he has nothing to gain and much to lose should he get injured. The thing you really watch out for is a guy on the other team trying to make a name for himself by taking on a feared NHL heavyweight.
This came from the Preds:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forward Brian McGrattan to Milwaukee (AHL) on a two-week conditioning assignment. McGrattan remains on Nashville's active roster during the conditioning stint.
McGrattan, 31 (9/2/81), has appeared in two games for the Predators in 2012-13. A season ago, he was claimed on waivers from Anaheim on Oct. 11, 2011 and played 30 games, notched two assists and recording 61 penalty minutes.
