This afternoon the Nashville Predators have removed Blake Geoffrion from Injured Reserve and
restored him to the Active Roster, bringing that group up to 22 players (UPDATE: he has now been assigned to Milwaukee, per Dave Boehler at the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel). Back on November 28, he took a hard hit from Edmonton's Ryan Jones which knocked him out of the lineup for the last six games.

As Josh Cooper reported this morning, Barry Trotz says that Geoffrion
may be was destined for Milwaukee soon in order to get more playing time. He's getting 10:24 of ice time per game this season (up from 8:16 in 2010-2011), but needs more work than that if he's going to grow as a player:
"He's a young player who has to play," Trotz said. "I would probably lean more to, if he's not in the lineup or just coming back, to get some games under his belt so he can be ready to get up here and stick again. I would lean that way more."
