Press Release via Nashville Predators:
Nashville, Tenn. (November 21, 2015) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Saturday that the club has reassigned forward Colton Sissons to Milwaukee (AHL) and activated forward Eric Nystrom from Injured Reserve.
Nystrom, 32 (2/14/83), has missed eight games due to an upper-body injury since leaving Nashville’s game at Los Angeles on Oct. 31. In 10 games this season, the Syosset, N.Y., native has three goals/points.
The Nashville Predators continue their five-game road trip tonight at 7 p.m. CT, as they take on the Minnesota Wild in a Central Division clash (TV: FOX Sports Tennessee; Radio: 102.5 The Game). The team will then travel to New York to take on the Rangers (Monday), Buffalo Sabres (Wednesday) and Philadelphia Flyers (Friday) before returning home to play the Sabres at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, Nov. 28. During “Golden Saturday” home contests, the team has special promotions, events, giveaways and in-arena campaigns centered around the “Gold” theme. All fans wearing Gold for the Nov. 18 game against Buffalo will receive a poster of recent Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Phil Housley. For more information or to purchase tickets, fans can visit NashvillePredators.com or call 615-770-7800.
Sissons, much like fellow Admirals alumni such as Austin Watson and Miikka Salomäki, had been enjoying a really great time at the NHL level. The Admirals team captain returned to the Predators after not having played NHL hockey since his first professional playing season of 2013-14. Sissons was able to play 5 games in his recent stint with the Predators and picked up a goal on his first game back in Nashville since that first pro playing season. He also was involved in a fight in a crazy game against the Winnipeg Jets.
