The highs and lows of the hockey season can get condensed at times into news stories such as today. The Nashville Predators reassigned defenseman Alex Carrier to the Milwaukee Admirals. There was then the announcement that forward Cody Bass will be out for the rest of the season due to a lower-body injury.
Starting first with the Bass news. This injury occurred on 12/28/16 when the Admirals hosted the Iowa Wild. Bass clashed legs in front of the bench area and went down clutching the back of his leg immediately. The last that I had heard was he underwent an MRI to his hamstring. It appears this injury is significant enough that he will no longer be able to factor in for the rest of the season.
That there was the continuation of hard news to swallow as of late. Yet, there is some real good news when it comes to Carrier returning to the Admirals. I’ve stated often enough this season that the 20-year old defenseman doesn’t look or play as if this is his first pro season. That translated well enough into seeing him make his NHL debut with the Predators on 1/17/17 on the road against the Vancouver Canucks. He played twice in his recall with the Predators and returns to the AHL where he is the Admirals leading defenseman in offense this season and their AHL All-Star representative.
