This morning I attended practice at the MSOE Kern Center. As I was settling in I received the alert that Kevin Fiala was reassigned to the Milwaukee Admirals from the Nashville Predators.
Press Release via Milwaukee Admirals:
Milwaukee, WI–Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Kevin Fiala to Milwaukee.
Fiala played in five games with Nashville after being recalled by the Predators January 11th. He scored his first NHL goal on January 14th in the Predators 5-4 OT loss to the Winnipeg Jets. Overall this season the Preds 2014 first round pick has tallied six goals and added 15 assists for 21 points in 34 games with the Admirals.
Fiala will join the Admirals for their game this Saturday night when they host the Grand Rapids Griffins at 7 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Tickets for Saturday, or any Ads game, can be purchased by calling Ticketmaster at (800) 745-3000. Groups of ten or more can receive great discounts over single game prices. Those interested in booking a group can call the Admirals office at (414) 227-0550.
Fiala took part in last night’s Predators 2-1 victory on the road against the Calgary Flames. He wasn’t a participant in today’s Admirals practice but should be on-hand tomorrow. He is expected to be with the Admirals through the NHL All-Star Break – which effectively means him playing this weekend’s game before being returned back to the Predators on Tuesday.
Of note from today’s practice: Jonathan Diaby took part in a brief skate session ahead of the full practice taking place. He has missed the last six-games due to an upper-body injury. Félix Girard displayed an evolution in his ability to celly after completing his shootout drill. And Jamie Devane also beat Marek Mazanec leading to an equally great celly. It should also bet noted that I didn’t see Trevor Murphy or Viktor Arvidsson take part in today’s practice.
