Per Josh Cooper of the Tennessean, defenseman Ryan Ellis has been assigned to the Admirals.
And per other reports, (and since confirmed by Coach Trotz) forward Kyle Wilson has been placed on waivers, likely with the intention of assigning him to the Admirals as well.
The status of defenseman Mattias Ekholm remains unclear. If the Preds elect to just keep 6 healthy defensemen (Weber, Suter, Klein, Blum, Laakso, Hillen), he may still get assigned to Milwaukee. But there’s also a clause in his contract that would allow him to go back to Europe to play if he didn’t make the Preds out of camp. Francis Boullion’s progress in returning to health may help with the decisions….we’ll see.
