The Nashville Predators have recalled Frédérick Gaudreau from the Milwaukee Admirals ahead of the Predators game tomorrow night on the road against the Chicago Blackhawks. Gaudreau was withheld from playing in last night’s 3-1 Admirals win on the road against the San Jose Barracuda due to a potential recall. That potential is now realized.
Gaudreau made his NHL debut with the Predators on 10/22/16 against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has played a total of 8 games this season for the Predators and recorded an assist in his third career game for his first NHL point.
With the Admirals this season Gaudreau has produced 14 points (5 goals, 9 assists) in 24 games. He participates in all areas of the game for the Admirals including the penalty kill and power-play. He is yet another forward fully capable of playing center or wing. The majority of his AHL season to date has been spent on the wing.
This is the most stretched the Admirals really have been all season. Fortunately, that was already the case for last night’s game and they were able to get a really high character performance and a win. Derek Army scored a pair of goals after having been brought in on a PTO Contract prior to the game and the Admirals dressed seven-defensemen including fellow PTO Contractee Rick Pinkston. The group that performed last night will do so again later tonight against the Stockton Heat.
