From the Nashville Predators:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Nick Spaling to Milwaukee (AHL).
Spaling, 21 (9/19/88), was recalled for the first time in his career on Dec. 15, and has appeared in the Predators last 21 games, posting three assists - including one last night in a 4-3 victory over Atlanta - while averaging 10:42 of ice time. Nashville's third choice, 58thoverall (second round) in the 2007 Entry Draft is also averaging 1:40 of shorthanded ice time in his inaugural NHL campaign, fifth-best among rookie forwards. The Palmerston, Ont., native has seven points (1g-6a) in 27 games for the Admirals in 2009-10.
I would assume this means we'll see Marcel Goc in the lineup Tuesday vs. Phoenix. Spaling has been very impressive, however, in the role he's been given.
