According to Bob McKenzie, Nashville Predators enforcer Wade Belak has unsurprisingly cleared waivers this morning, and now word comes that the team has reassigned him to the Milwaukee Admirals:
Nashville, Tenn. (February 26, 2011) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forward Wade Belak to Milwaukee (AHL).
Belak, 34 (7/3/76), is scoreless with 18 penalty minutes in 15 games for the Predators in 2010-11. The 17-year pro has 33 points (8g-25a) and 1,263 penalty minutes in 549 NHL games, and 11 points (1g-10a) and 460 penalty minutes in 110 American Hockey League games since the 1994-95 campaign. In 1997, the Saskatoon, Sask., native helped the Hershey Bears win the 1997 Calder Cup.
