The Nashville Predators have officially recalled Marek Mazanec from the Milwaukee Admirals this morning. In response the Admirals have recalled Mark Visentin from their ECHL affiliate the Cincinnati Cyclones.
This goaltending swap originated to give Mazanec game action that he wasn’t seeing top side while giving the youngster Saros a look up with the Predators. At today’s practice for the Predators all goalies were accounted for except Pekka Rinne.
Mazanec made two starts for the Admirals during his time back in the AHL. He recorded a win and an overtime loss in two gutsy performances in front of him by the Admirals in comeback style. As for the last game he played he took much if not all the blame in the team’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Grand Rapids Griffins. He had a 3.90 goals against average and 0.849 save percentage in his two starts with the Admirals.
The Admirals and Predators are both in action tomorrow night. The Admirals host the Charlotte Checkers at 7 PM CST while the Predators take to the road for a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at 6:30 PM CST.
