Aaron Sims confirmed during tonight’s pre-game show what had been rumored for a good chunk of today.
Blake Geoffrion is heading to Nashville.
Both Blake and Matt Halischuk have been recalled by the Preds.
And with the Alex Sulzer trade today, it paves the way for Jon Blum to have a lengthier stay with the big club – maybe for the rest of the season.
Linus Klasen is still out with an upper body injury, so this leaves quite the hole in the Admirals lineup.
They have called up Mike McLean (41) and Connor Shields (21), and those two are in Milwaukee and dressed tonight for the game.
McLean was pointless in six games with the Admirals last year, and had been playing with the Quad City Mallards this season with 16 goals and 25 assists.
After attending the Admirals training camp, Shields had been playing for Greenville of the ECHL, scoring 16 goals and 30 assists in 55 games.
No word yet on a 7th defenseman yet.
Ok Roundtable. Of course we all wish Blake well. But look me square in the monitor and tell me that Blake deserved this promotion.
