Nashville Predators re-assign Mark Dekanich and Steve Begin to Milwaukee

New, comments

It looks like Pekka Rinne, and perhaps one of the forwards, may be ready to return to the Nashville Predators' lineup Wednesday at Chicago:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced tonight that the club has reassigned forward Steve Begin and goaltender Mark Dekanich to Milwaukee (AHL).

Begin, 32 (6/14/78), made his Predators debut last night in a 3-1 victory at New Jersey, and suited up again tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. Dekanich, 24 (5/10/86), made his NHL debut tonight against the Kings, stopping 22-of-25 shots in 49:59 of action. He spent seven games backing up goaltender Anders Lindback from Dec. 4-17.

Given that he skated this morning, my guess is that David Legwand may be the one returning to duty before Patric Hornqvist.
