Nashville Predators Recall Daniel Bang From Milwaukee

With Mike Fisher, Paul Gaustad, Brandon Yip and Gabriel Bourque all missing this morning's skate (in addition to Colin Wilson who is still on Injured Reserve), the Nashville Predators were down to just 19 healthy players for tonight, so they've called up Daniel Bang from the Milwaukee Admirals per a number of reports from this morning's skate.

Bang played previously for AIK in Sweden's Elitserien, and is in his first North American pro season after being signed as a free agent by Nashville last summer, so this move gives him his chance to make his NHL debut. The Admirals' site lists him at 6'4" 205 lbs., so it will be interesting to see what kind of presence he provides on the wing tonight against the St. Louis Blues. His stats on the year are as follows:

Season Team GP G A PTS +/- PIM S S%
2012-13 Milwaukee Admirals 50 8 12 20 1 21 71 11.3

For a look at him in action, here he is scoring a goal for Milwaukee back on Halloween:
