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.
