Nashville Predators re-assign Colin Wilson & Alexander Sulzer to Milwaukee

New, comments

From the Nashville Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Colin Wilson and defenseman Alexander Sulzer to Milwaukee (AHL).

Wilson, 20 (10/20/89), posted two points in four games during his second NHL stint which started Feb. 9, scoring his first ever game-winning goal against the New York Rangers on Tuesday, then posting his second career assist the following game at New Jersey on Friday night. He played a career-high 18:06 in Sunday's 4-3 shootout victory over the defending Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins to finish off the Predators pre-Olympic break schedule. In 14 games this season, the seventh overall pick in the 2008 Entry Draft has four points (2g-2a). He heads back to Milwaukee where he has 24 points (9g-15a) in his last 17 AHL outings.

Sulzer, 25 (5/30/84), has a pair of assists in 18 games for the Predators in 2009-10, and suited up for all six of Nashville's games during his most recent recall (Feb. 4-14). He will not be heading to Milwaukee, but rather to Vancouver to represent Germany in the 2010 Olympics, his second appearance in the Winter Games. The 6-1, 204-pound blueliner also has 19 points (4g-15a) in 19 games at the AHL level this season.

This isn't surprising, as the guys could use the game action over the next two weeks. The question is, will Wilson return as soon as the Olympics conclude?
