The defense is back to full-strength tonight for the Milwaukee Admirals but the offense keeps getting more and more depleted. The Nashville Predators have recalled Pontus Åberg from the Admirals ahead of both teams’ games tonight. In response, the Admirals have added forward Garrett Meurs from the Wheeling Nailers on a PTO Contract.
Åberg has 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) in 9 games this season for the Predators. The 23-year old has 19 points (9 goals, 10 assists) in 23 games at the AHL level with the Admirals. He now joined the likes of Harry Zolnierczyk, Vladislav Kamenev, and Frédérick Gaudreau as recent forward call-ups to the Predators roster.
Meurs currently leads the Nailers in goal scoring and joins his ol’ teammate Derek Army to the Admirals roster on PTO basis. Meurs has 24 points (13 goals, 11 assists) in 31 games this season in the ECHL as well as a plus/minus rating of +13 and 49 penalty minutes He is a former draft pick of the Colorado Avalanche and has played 87 career AHL games including 6 career games played against the Admirals as a member of the Lake Erie Monsters.
