This afternoon the Nashville Predators reassigned Viktor Arvidsson to the Milwaukee Admirals. That came prior to the NHL Trade Deadline which is attached at the hip with the AHL’s deadline for Playoff eligibility. All players on the AHL rosters the moment of the NHL Trade Deadline expiring become AHL Playoff eligible.
Arvidsson is now eligible to join the Admirals should they qualify for the 2016 AHL Calder Cup Playoffs. Now that he is, he’s already headed back where he belongs as -according to AHL Transactions– Arvidsson has immediately been recalled back to the Predators.
This is then a paper transaction by the Predators to help look after both the Admirals and Arvidsson. Should the Admirals have a longer playoff run than their parent club – Arvidsson can rejoin his teammates in Milwaukee and provide a welcome boost to the Admirals bid for the Calder Cup.
Arvidsson has scored 18 points (8 goals, 10 assists) in 17 games with the Admirals this season. As a member of the Predators he has managed to produce 11 points (7 goals, 4 assists) in 37 games.
