The Nashville Predators have reassigned forward Frédérick Gaudreau to the Milwaukee Admirals ahead of tonight’s road game against the Chicago Wolves. Gaudreau follows the likes of Vladislav Kamenev who was reassigned late of yesterday’s contest as returning faces to the Admirals lineup tonight.
Gaudreau has now played 9 games this season for the Predators. It is still one of the true feel good stories given the path he traveled to make it into the NHL: undrafted, signed to the Admirals on an AHL contract, played for the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL, battled to earn an NHL contract in the AHL, and has pushed for NHL opportunities this season. Gaudreau has a lone assist in his work for the Predators with a plus/minus rating of +1. He was a healthy scratch in last night’s Predators game.
With the Admirals, Gaudreau has produced 14 points (5 goals, 9 assists) in 24 games with a plus/minus rating of +2 and 4 penalty minutes. His return, as well as Kamenev’s for that matter, provides the Admirals with serious energy that was lacking last night and both provide work on both ends of special teams. There is no word as of yet if either Garrett Meurs, Shawn O’Donnell, or Derek Army will be released from their PTO Contracts at the moment as the forward depth returns to the Admirals roster.
