Klasen Recalled

Have I mentioned lately how awesome Josh Cooper is?

Josh Cooper is the Preds beat writer for the Tennessean.  And he provides better coverage in his sleep than John Glennon could fully awake.

Josh brings us these details today.

Linus Kla­sen is in the house. The Mil­wau­kee sni­per was reca­lled today. The rea­son? Steve Sulli­van (lower-body) and Mar­tin Erat (upper-body) are no-goes for tonight’s game against the Blues. Nash­vi­lle Coach Barry Trotz said Kla­sen will most likely slide into Erat’s spot, with Ser­gei Kos­titsyn and Mar­cel Goc kee­ping the across-the-pond con­ti­nuity of the “Euro” line.

Trotz said he hoped Erat would return Tues­day against the Dallas Stars. Sulli­van, he was less sure about. Nashville’s lea­ding sco­rer made the trip to St. Louis, but not to play. Trotz said Sulli­van was here to see a doctor.

So it sounds like another cup of coffee for Klasen, but it sounds like it will be short-term.  But if he’s able to show some chemistry with those linemates, hopefully he’ll be able to give the coaches a tough decision about sending him back to Milwaukee when Erat is ready to go.

We’ll see how it goes in St. Louis tonight!
