From the Nashville Predators:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned defenseman Alexander Sulzer (al-ehx-AN-duhr SUHLT-suhr) to Milwaukee (AHL).
Sulzer, 25 (5/30/84), has one assist in 10 games with the Predators this season, posting his first career point/assist on Oct. 22 at Ottawa, while averaging 13:10 of ice time and notching a plus-three rating.
Many have been expecting a forward like Dave Scatchard to perhaps be sent down instead, so this is a bit of a surprise.

Germany announces their Winter Olympics hockey roster on Wednesday, and I can't imagine that Sulzer's lack of playing time has helped his cause any.
