The Nashville Predators have reassigned forward Linus Klasen to Milwaukee of the AHL this afternoon, leaving them with no extra forwards for tomorrow night's tilt against the San Jose Sharks, and perhaps none on Tuesday if Steve Sullivan and Martin Erat remain out of the lineup.
Per the team:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Linus Klasen (LEEH-nuhs KLAH-sehn) to Milwaukee.
Klasen, 24 (2/19/86), appeared in three games during his most recent recall. He made his NHL debut on Oct. 30 at Detroit and now has no points in four career games while averaging 12:53. At the time of his recall, the Stockholm, Sweden native was tied for sixth in the American Hockey League in goals (15) and game-winning goals (3), in addition to ranking fourth in the League in power-play markers (7, tie). In his first North American professional season the 5-8, 178-pound winger paces the Admirals in points with 27 (15g-12a) in 29 games.
