Miikka Salomäki has fulfilled his long-term injury loan assignment with the Milwaukee Admirals and will be rejoining the Nashville Predators roster. It’s likely that he will be traveling to Nashville ahead of Monday’s game at the Bridgestone Arena against the Winnipeg Jets rather than race to the West Coast for Saturday’s afternoon game versus the San Jose Sharks.
Prior to this conditioning assignment Salomäki had only played three games in the 2016-17 season. Even then, it was hardly three full-games considering he broke his hand blocking a shot in one and then suffered a significant leg injury in the first period of his initial conditioning assignment with the Admirals after that.
During this recent spell on the comeback trail Salomäki played three full-games of work with the Admirals and scored a goal in his first game back from injury. He also celebrated his twenty-fifth birthday on Thursday. In his Admirals career he has now played a total of 121 games while scoring 71 points (29 goals, 42 assists).
