This afternoon the Nashville Predators officially reassigned Colton Sissons to the Milwaukee Admirals. The move comes after the 20-year-old played in thirteen games since being recalled on March 10. In that time Sissons scored his first career NHL goal along with two assists.
Sissons upped his total to seventeen NHL games in his first professional playing season putting up a total of four points (one goal, three assists). As far ice time goes, Sissons set a personal best last weekend, 15:13 TOI, in the Predators 4-3 shootout win over the Washington Capitals. He followed that up with the second lowest total of the season: 7:13 TOI in a 5-2 road win against the Anaheim Ducks. With the return of Paul Gaustad in yesterday’s 3-0 shutout – Sissons was a healthy scratch.
He returns to the Admirals as the team’s fourth highest scorer 41 points (24 goals, 17 assists). Mind you, he has done that in far less games than those in front of him. He is tied on the team with Taylor Beck in points per game with 0.73 Pt/G – despite Sissons playing four less games than Beck.
With the Rockford IceHogs coming in tomorrow night it should be an added bonus for Sissons. He has scored 8 points (5 goals, 3 assists) in nine games against Rockford this season including 2 goals in the game prior to his last recall to Nashville.
So Roundtable… How would like to welcome Colton Sissons back to Milwaukee? Do you think his latest stint in the NHL games will make him an even more effective player with the Admirals?
