The Nashville Predators and Milwaukee Admirals are both in action tonight. Ahead of those games the Predators have reassigned Stefan Elliott to the Admirals with Ryan Ellis set to return.
Press Release via Nashville Predators:
Nashville, Tenn. (April 5, 2016) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has reassigned defenseman Stefan Elliott to Milwaukee (AHL). He was on recall under emergency conditions.
The Nashville Predators are celebrating the final week of the regular season, Fan Appreciation Week, with hundreds of giveaways and promotions during the two remaining home games. The Predators play their final games of the 2015-16 regular season tonight, Tuesday, April 5 against the Colorado Avalanche (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game), and Thursday, April 7 versus the Arizona Coyotes (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game). The first 15,000 fans attending the home finale will receive a pair of Preds sunglasses, courtesy of Hermitage Lighting Gallery. For tickets, fans can visit NashvillePredators.com or call 615-770-7800.
Elliott was recalled under emergency conditions following an injury to Ellis and, in his time up with the Predators, played in a pair of games. He logged just under fifteen minutes of ice-time in his last outing and didn’t register a point of offense. It’s unclear at this point if Elliott will make it in time to join the Admirals ahead of their game tonight in Manitoba.

Not related to this story, but any idea why Fiala was scratched Saturday night? Or what his violation was earlier in the week?
FITF: I asked Evason about it and I think it was team decision to just hold him out another game and let A.J. White get his professional debut in: https://soundcloud.com/adsroundtable/4216-dean-evason-post-game-interview
