Hey, good for Fox 6 to give any love to the Admirals on any day other than media day, concert nights, and the playoffs.
They were at Admirals practice today to do a day-in-the-life-of-a-goalie story, and they were there when Coach Evason got the call that Magnus Hellberg was to be on a plane to Nashville tonight.

Here are some things that stand out…
First — that conversation between Magnus and the coach…. you can tell Dean was just THRILLED that cameras were there. Second — I don’t believe for one second that he doesn’t know what the goalie situation is in Nashville. Third — Kramp suggested that he thought Hellberg was about to be demoted.
Oh, Kramp. Every Admirals fan is just shaking their head.
Fourth….oh that headline…. Milwaukee Admirals gets called up to the “bigs”. I hope they change it by the time you read it. That’s painful.
Nevertheless….credit where credit is due. Fox 6 broke the story, and they should get the credit for it. And we’re very happy for Magnus.
Nothing is official until the Preds say it is (I’m
pretty sure absolutely positive they’re even less pleased about the cameras there than Dean was). Josh Cooper from the Tennessean tweeted: “For those wondering, Hutton did practice on-ice today. Rinne did not.”
The Admirals are off until Saturday, so in the event that this is just precautionary, we may get Magnus back in time for Saturday’s game against the Texas Stars. But we’ll be watching Josh Cooper and the Nashville blogs for news on Rinne tomorrow, for sure.
THURSDAY UPDATE: Magnus won’t be back on Saturday.
