The NHL’s regular season officially ended this past weekend. That means certain players will be making the trip back to the AHL for its final week and playoff season. For the Milwaukee Admirals they’ll be seeing the return of super Swede Calle Jarnkrok.
Jarnkrok’s season started with the Grand Rapids Griffins where he played 57 games, scored 36 points (13 goals, 23 assists), had a plus/minus of +19, and 14 penalty minutes. At the NHL’s trade deadline he was a part of Detroit’s package to the Nashville Predators for David Legwand. He made an instant impact as a member of the Admirals: 5 games, 7 points (5 goals, 2 assist), plus/minus of +5, and no penalty minutes.
He was officially recalled to Nashville near the end of March. Since then he has played 12 games in the NHL, scored 9 points (2 goals, 7 assists), has a plus/minus of +7, and 4 penalty minutes. In yesterday’s season finale to the Predators 2013-14 season – Jarnkrok scored 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) in a 7-3 win over the Minnesota Wild.
How big of an addition will Calle Jarnkrok be for the Admirals playoff run? If you had the chance to watch him in the NHL – how do you feel he performed in his time with Nashville?
