Calle Jarnkrok Recalled to Nashville

A day ahead of the Admirals opening tilt in a four-game road trip we have a roster move to announce. This afternoon Calle Jarnkrok has earned his first career NHL recall and is heading up to the Nashville Predators.

Having watched last night’s Predators game against the Canucks I noticed two pretty good knocks in the game. Paul Gaustad left the game after Alexander Edler landed on top of him in the first period. And Nick Spaling also seemed to get dinged up later in the game.

With some possible injury woes in the mix – Nashville will give Jarnkrok his first taste of the NHL. This season in the AHL he has an overall scoring total of 43 points (18 goals, 25 assists) from 62 games between his time with the Grand Rapids Griffins and Milwaukee Admirals. Since being acquired in the David Legwand deal – Jarnkrok’s offensive output has been fantastic: 7 points (5 goals, 2 assists) in 5 games in Milwaukee.

Per the Roundtable’s Jason Karnosky: Jarnkrok was a member of Team Sweden’s 2013 World Championship squad where he played with current Nashville Predators Patric Hornqvist and Viktor Stalberg.

The importance of patience is one thing. When injuries start to kick up, and you already have the likes of Colton Sissons in camp, you might as well give him a glimpse of things to come.

Thoughts on the move? How do you think Calle Jarnkrok’s game will fit or not-fit in the NHL? How badly does this impact the Admirals heading into the road trip?

  1. It definitely hurts the Admirals. His line was a big reason for our offensive successes over the last couple of weeks. We just have to hope other guys can step up.

  2. I’m not surprised by the call-up. Jarnkrok has been outstanding with the Admiral’s. With his skill set and Nashville not being able to score a goal on a consistent basis they’d be foolish not to get a look at him.

    Poor timing if you are a Admiral’s fan . Four game week long road trip without Sissons (NHL) , Moser (Injury) and now Jarnkrok (NHL) but that is the AHL.

    It’s time for both Cehlin and Rask to o pick up there games and add more offensively. Both should be capable of adding more to the score/sheet and final outcome of the game.

    Michael Young – Looks to be a nice addition . Size , Skating , Some Skill ,

  3. He deserves it but it does suck for us. Hope Trotz doesn’t have enough time to ruin his game.

  4. Not overly surprising. I am concerned as to where the Ads offence will come from as they are pushing for a playoff run. I know a lot of people will say that the AHL is just for developing talent, but with Nashville’s playoff chances gone, AHL playoff time would be good for as many guys as they can give it to.

    Sioux62….Don’t expect too much from Cehlin for the rest of the season. Unless I miss my guess (and I have a LOT of experience in this area) Cehlin got a second concussion, albeit a mild one, in the game against Rockford on March 7th. Don’t get me wrong, he is my favorite Ad, but I think the game on March 14th was the exception rather than the rule for the rest of Cehlin’s season.
