Joe Piskula to Nashville

After some developments out of Nashville, in which both Shea Weber and Kevin Klein are out of the lineup tonight, veteran d-man Joe Piskula has been recalled by the Predators. Piskula has played in ten career NHL games. The last time he played in the NHL was during the 2011-12 season with the Calgary Flames. He has yet to record his first career NHL point. Here’s hoping that changes on chance number three for Piskula in his now eighth professional season.

This move was countered by the Admirals who recalled Teddy Ruth from the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. Ruth started the season with the Ads, played in four games, and didn’t score a point. Since the move down to Cinci he has played in twelve games, scored one goal and two assists, and picked up six penalty minutes.

Right move by Nashville? Would you have preferred another defensemen get called up to Nashville? Likewise, is there another defensemen you would have liked to have seen in Cincinnati get called up?

  1. I think he deserves another try. He has been playing well for the Ads and will fill a third line role for the Preds. Preds fans have not been very impressed with Bartley this year so I do not think he can do worse.

  2. Bartley had a rough start to the season, but since being put back in the line-up he’s been much better. But I am glad to see Piskula finally get some action in Nashville (despite having Weber and Klein out). #47 fared pretty well in his first game: +1, 2 shots, 1 hit in 10:27 of ice-time. Not at all bad, especially considering the loss. Anyhoo…
