Our friend Dave Boehler from the Journal-Sentinel is reporting that Ryan Thang has been called up by the Predators.
If Thang plays tomorrow night in Chicago, it’ll be his NHL debut.
Couldn’t be happier for him, as he has been great so far this season, and is a responsible two-way player that hopefully will have a small learning curve at the next level.
As for this afternoon…it leaves the Admirals with just 11 healthy forwards on the roster. So they’ll be dressing seven defensemen. In other words…every healthy skater on the roster will play tonight.
This makes me further question why Chris Cahill was excused to Cincy earlier this week. Playing the last game of a 3-in-3 with a tired and shorthanded roster….would have been nice to avoid that.
Tyler Sloan has played a little bit of forward previously in his career…we’ll see if Coach Muller gives him a few shifts up front. Honestly, with our young D, I think I’d prefer him back on the blue line.
