The Nashville Predators have activated defenseman Petter Granberg from injured reserve and assigned him to the Milwaukee Admirals. Granberg last played with the Predators in the middle of January when they played on the road against the Colorado Avalanche. He had been out due to injury since.
Granberg has split time between the NHL and AHL this season but the majority has been spent with the Admirals. He had played 18 games in the AHL opposed to 10 games in the NHL with the Predators. His return to game readiness will be a welcome addition to an Admirals group that could benefit from the defense first style defenseman as that’s been the issue lately for the team. It also allows the Admirals to return back to head coach Dean Evason‘s preferred method of three left handed shots and three right handed shots being grouped together on defense.
The Admirals are currently enjoying their AHL All-Star break. They return to action this Friday night at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena when the Rockford IceHogs turn up for the first of three meetings in the month of February. The Admirals then travel overnight to play against the Grand Rapids Griffins and the formidable Van Andel Arena on Saturday.
