For those following along on Twitter todat and might have been a wee bit confused by the comings and goings of Simon Moser I have some clarifications for you!
As mentioned here at the Roundtable, he was reassigned to the Milwaukee Admirals with Colton Sissons on Sunday. Moser played in his first career NHL game the day prior in St. Louis. He played 10:21 of ice time over 16 shifts.
Then came some conflicting reports on the Twitter-verse:

Admirals forward Simon Moser left today for the Olympics! RT this to wish him luck!!

So, what’s the deal? I’ll tell you. Moser was scheduled to leave for the Olympics today. Instead, he was given another quickfire recall from the Nashville Predators where he took part in team practice today at 10:30am with the team. It’s odd that, given his reassignment on Sunday, he was recalled back so quickly – and before the Admirals play on Wednesday when the Predators play a state away in Minnesota on Thursday. This seems to be the second time in a week when Moser was scheduled to join Team Switzerland in Sochi. He was about to join the Olympic squad prior to his first NHL recall. Still unknown exactly when he departs North America. If anything, perhaps he’ll leave when fellow Predator and Swiss Olympian Roman Josi departs for the Olympics.
What are your thoughts on the yo-yo style call ups for Moser these last few days? Will he remain in the NHL until the Olympic break?
