I ended my last story on Miikka Salomäki‘s great NHL debut by stating there is no telling how long of a stay he will have up in Nashville. Today the Nashville Predators have an answer to that. They’ve activated Taylor Beck and Matt Cullen from injured reserve and reassigned Salomäki back to the Milwaukee Admirals.
As mentioned previously, Salomäki had a total of 10:49 of ice time, recorded a goal from four shots, and had a game best seven hits. He actually had double the amount of hits of anyone else in the game last night. The 3-2 (OT) win for the Predators over the Dallas Stars meant that they moved into first place overall in the NHL last night with their 27-9-1 record.
How do you feel Miikka Salomäki will perform after having made his NHL debut? Do you feel he has made a statement as the go-to call up from Milwaukee?
