Cody Bass has officially cleared waivers and has been assigned by the Nashville Predators (NHL) to the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL). It’s yet to be determined whether or not Bass will be arriving in time for or dressed for tonight’s game at home against the Rockford IceHogs.
In his most recent spell for the Predators Bass played 12 games, failed to score a point of offense, has a plus/minus rating of -1, and 12 penalty minutes (including 2 fighting majors). When we last saw Bass in Milwaukee he was coming off of a month long lay-off due to an “upper-body” injury. Bass played a pair of games in January, scored a goal in his first game back from injury, and would get sent packing to the NHL on 1/13/16.
That injury that sidelined Bass for a month does make it feel like ages since he played for the Admirals. In reality, his 2015-16 season at the AHL level has been 21 games, 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists), plus/minus rating of +4, and 50 penalty minutes (including 8 fighting majors).
For those that may have missed some of the fireworks last night there was a bit of fun in the Predators game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. During pre-game warm-ups Rich Clune started jawing with Bass at center ice and eventually let loose on his old rival with a “no punches pulled” interview. You can read and watch up on all those happenings via CBS Sports which has compiled everything you need to see.
What will the return of Bass mean for the current setup of the Milwaukee Admirals? Who gets impacted by this more: Jamie Devane, Adam Payerl, or Matt White?
