After some developments out of Nashville, in which both Shea Weber and Kevin Klein are out of the lineup tonight, veteran d-man Joe Piskula has been recalled by the Predators. Piskula has played in ten career NHL games. The last time he played in the NHL was during the 2011-12 season with the Calgary Flames. He has yet to record his first career NHL point. Here’s hoping that changes on chance number three for Piskula in his now eighth professional season.
This move was countered by the Admirals who recalled Teddy Ruth from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. Ruth started the season with the Ads, played in four games, and didn’t score a point. Since the move down to Cinci he has played in twelve games, scored one goal and two assists, and picked up six penalty minutes.
Right move by Nashville? Would you have preferred another defensemen get called up to Nashville? Likewise, is there another defensemen you would have liked to have seen in Cincinnati get called up?
