Matt Halischuk Sent to Milwaukee for Conditioning Stint

USA TODAY Sports

Just as Brian McGrattan was a couple weeks before being traded to Calgary, Matt Halischuk is being sent to the Milwaukee Admirals to get some game action. He's been in and out of the lineup of late, most recently seeing 8:53 of ice time in Monday night's game at Los Angeles.

I'll confess to not being the biggest Halischuk fan, but his tale is a perfect example of the perils of PDO. His advanced stats have always been underwhelming, but they had actually improved this season. God-awful puck luck, however, has cast him in a horrid light. The team is scoring on just 1.61% of shots in 5-on-5 when he's out there, 2nd-worst in the NHL among players with 10 GP and 10 minutes per game.

And no, you really can't convince me that Halischuk is responsible for that low shooting percentage.

When the hockey gods smiled upon him, the underlying warts in Halischuk's game were easy to overlook. Now that the fates have turned, he's the odd man out.

This just arrived from the Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forward Matt Halischuk to Milwaukee (AHL) on a conditioning assignment. Halischuk remains on Nashville's active roster during the conditioning stint.

Halischuk, 24 (6/1/88), has one assist and six penalty minutes in 16 games for the Predators this season. He last appeared with the Admirals during the 2010-11 season when he amassed 23 points (11g-12a) in 37 games.
