The Milwaukee Admirals leading scorer, Colton Sissons, has been recalled by the Nashville Predators this morning and is expected to take part in tonight’s game against the Ottawa Senators.
This is Sissons third recall of the season with the Predators. He has played in 4 games, tallied an assist in his first-career NHL game, has 2 penalty minutes, and a plus/minus of +2. With the Admirals this season he leads the team in points (41) and goals scored (24).
Today’s call up for Sissons also comes during an outstanding run for him and the Admirals. In the recent 4-game winning streak – he has scored 7 points (5 goals, 2 assists) – including 4 goals in the last two games against the Rockford IceHogs. Here’s hoping that translates into his first career NHL goal tonight!
I don’t know about you guys but sometimes I forget that Colton Sissons is a 20-year old in his first professional season of hockey. I also can’t help but wonder if we should expect more of this from the Predators season continues. I have to imagine they would like to give some guys looks up top – if even for a game or two.
How long do you think this recall will last for Sissons? If he is unavailable for Wednesday’s game against the Iowa Wild – who fills his spot? Would the Admirals need to recall someone from Cincinnati following some recent injury blows from the Rockford clashes?
