Simon Moser Returning to Milwaukee

This was a move that seemed fairly possible with the news that everyone on the Nashville Predators roster was healthy for last night’s game against the Penguins. With Nick Spaling back off of IR and others cleared to play – the Predators reassigned Simon Moser to the Milwaukee Admirals this afternoon.

Moser was called up to the NHL just prior to the Olympics and rejoined the Predators after a brief stop in Milwaukee once the Olympic break ended. He has played 6 games with the Preds, produced 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist), has 2 penalty minutes, and is even on his plus/minus. With the Admirals he has played 42 games, scored 25 points (8 goals, 17 assists), recorded 8 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of +1.

Thoughts on Moser being sent back down? Should he have remained with Nashville?

  1. This could be a real boost to what has been a sagging offense (not counting the 9 goal game last Friday).
    Moser has shown leadership and the ability to put the puck in net. He will have to continue to show what earned him his Olympic shot and his NHL debut to get back to Nashville. And not take his return to Milwaukee as a demotion. The Predators are healthy right now so this is just a numbers game. He (Moser) will have another chance soon enough.

  2. Milwaukee Admiral’s certainly became a better team today with the return of Simon Moser and the addition of Calle Jarnkrok, Looking forward to seeing them both on Friday vs. Rockford.

  3. May have just been a paper transaction for Moser.

    From the AHL’s website: “In addition to trades, the NHL requires that in order to be eligible to be sent down to the AHL for the remainder of the 2013-14 season, an NHL player must be on an AHL roster at Wednesday’s deadline.

    “The AHL’s own trade deadline is set for next Wednesday, Mar. 12, at 3 p.m. ET.”

    Guess we’ll see if he’s still here on Friday.

  4. I tend to think this was just a numbes transaction, but no question Simon Moser had his worst game as a Predator Tuesday against Pittsburgh getting caught in bad position a couple of times, especially against Evgeni Malkin. He certainly won’t be the last player to have his worst game against the Penguins, but overall the Swiss rookie has handled himself quite nicely in Nashville just as the Predators expected him to. He’ll be on his way back up soon enough.
