Nashville Predators send Geoffrion, Halischuk & Blum to Milwaukee for Game 7 of Admirals/Aeros

From the Nashville Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forwards Blake Geoffrion and Matt Halischuk, and defenseman Jonathon Blum to Milwaukee (AHL). The Admirals play Game Seven of their West Division Finals series against the Houston Aeros tonight at 7 p.m. CT.

The rookie trio appeared in all 12 of Nashville's 2011 Stanley Cup Playoff contests - Blum and Geoffrion both notched a pair of assists, while Halischuk scored two goals, most notably the game winner in the longest game in Predators history - a double-overtime win in Game Two of the Western Conference Semifinals at Vancouver.

As Buddy Oakes speculated earlier, Chris Mueller and Teemu Laakso are also likely on the way, as they were just around the team as emergency options in case of injury.
