The Nashville Predators reassigned Mike Liambas to the Milwaukee Admirals ahead of their game this evening against the Philadelphia Flyers. The move comes a day after Liambas made his NHL debut as well as a day after the Predators claimed Reid Boucher off of waivers from the New Jersey Devils.
Liambas played 4:42 of ice-time over the course of eight shifts yesterday afternoon when making his NHL debut with the Predators. The team lost 5-4 in overtime after having a 4-1 lead entering the third period. Liambas had logged 201 games in the AHL, 87 games in the ECHL, and 50 games between the IHL and CWUAA before making his NHL debut yesterday. Liambas became the 607th player to play an NHL game after having played at the ECHL level – which he did for both the Orlando Solar Bears and Cincinnati Cyclones.
It should be expected for Liambas to join the Admirals who are traveling today to Iowa and then take part in Tuesday night’s road game against the Iowa Wild. As of yet the Admirals haven’t released any of the two players signed to PTO contracts yesterday, Derek Army or Blake Kessel, ahead of that game. Given just how stretched the Admirals are at the moment it could be safe to assume that says the case. The Admirals even with the inclusion of Liambas would be one forward over and needing to healthy scratch Army Tuesday night.
