From the Preds:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Patric Hornqvist from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis.
Hornqvist, 22 (1/1/87) has seven points (2g-5a) in 20 games during two previous stints with the Predators this season from Oct. 10-Nov. 15 and Feb. 3-10. In 47 games with Milwaukee, he has 35 points (17g-18a), and recently put together an eight-game goal streak (8g-3a) Feb. 24-March 11. The Sollentuna, Sweden native is just the ninth player to appear in an NHL contest after being selected with the final pick of an entry draft; he was chosen by the Predators with their seventh choice (230th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft.
Presumably this is related to the news from The View from 111 that Wade Belak has been sent home from the road trip with an abdominal injury.
