Colton Sissons recalled from Milwaukee, Carter Hutton to IR
Same news, different players.
Yesterday it was Marek Mazanec and Eric Nystrom. Today, Colton Sissons gets his first call up in two years, while Carter Hutton is officially placed on injured reserve.
Sissons, much like Austin Watson, has been expected to be brought onto the teams at various times over the last several years, but for one reason or another (roster space, more experienced players) never has. How long his stint will be this time is unknown, but let's hope it's a productive one.
From the Preds:
Nashville, Tenn. (November 10, 2015) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has recalled forward Colton Sissons from Milwaukee (AHL) and placed goaltender Carter Hutton on Injured Reserve.
Sissons, 22 (11/5/93), leads the Milwaukee Admirals in points and assists (2g-5a-7pts) through 10 games this season, and has recorded points in six of his last seven outings. Named team captain for 2015-16, the North Vancouver, B.C., native appeared in all 76 of Milwaukee's games in 2014-15, ranking second on the team in goals (25) and third in points (42), becoming the first Admirals player in the team’s AHL history to record back-to-back 25-goal seasons to start his career. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder has suited up for 17 career NHL games – all with Nashville during the 2013-14 season – recording four points (1g-3a).
