Daniel Bang will get his first chance in the NHL. Multiple sources reported via Twitter today that the winger is headed up to Nashville.

Mike Fisher, Paul Gaustad, Brandon Yip and Gabriel Bourque all missed this morning’s skate for Nashville, and Bang will likely make his NHL debut tonight against St. Louis.

The recent string of Predator injuries and a big move at the trade deadline have already depleted the Admirals’ offense. Now, still in the hunt for the postseason and just two days after losing Austin Watson, Milwaukee loses another key piece.

Bang’s recorded eight goals and 12 assists in 50 games played this season, but he’s been especially hot of late with six points in his last six games. He’s also one of the fastest guys in the AHL, and coach Dean Evason has previously mentioned the “speed element” he brings to the roster.

So Roundtable, how much will this loss hurt? So far, the Ads have been able to step up in the wake of these moves, but Bang was one of the main guys who’d recently elevated his game. On the flipside, are you happy to see Bang get a shot at the big leagues?

  1. What’s interesting is the Preds press release says the pronunciation of BANG is “BAWNG”. Isn’t he announced as BAAANG here in Milwaukee by both Aaron Sims and Matt Moore?

  2. According to Aaron, Bang said it’s “BAWNG” in Sweden and “BANG” in North America. He prefers “BANG” since he’s in North America. That’s why the Ads announce it as such.

  3. Word has it that Ryan Miller was Sked to report to Saturday’s game with his skates. He is going to be our newest deforwardenseman.

    Congrats and good luck to Bang and the others called up. Funny how the first half of the season held out no hope of going up, and now Nashville is like a giant vacuum, pulling the players away from Milwaukee.
