Denis Grebeshkov injured, Sulzer recalled

John Glennon brings grim news this afternoon:

The Preds have lost defen­se­man Denis Gre­besh­kov for one to two weeks with a lower-body injury. He appa­rently suf­fe­red the injury fairly early in Sunday's loss to Van­cou­ver, but pla­yed through it for a while. Nash­vi­lle has reca­lled Ale­xan­der Sulzer.

Barry Trotz is also jumbling the lines again (except for Ward-Legwand-Smithson), so tomorrow's game in Atlanta will bear special attention. And in other news, J.P. Dumont is down on the 4th line now. Considering that David Legwand hasn't scored a goal in two months (January 2nd vs. Anaheim), one would think that a change there might be warranted.

Here's your PR statement from the team:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Alexander Sulzer from Milwaukee (AHL) under emergency conditions.

Sulzer, 25 (5/30/84), posted three points (1g-2a) in three games during his most recent stint with the Admirals from March 3-8,  giving him 22 points (5g-17a) in 22 games at the American Hockey League level. He last played for Nashville prior to representing Germany for the second consecutive Olympics in Vancouver last month, and has a pair of assists in 18 games for the Predators in 2009-10.
