The Nashville Predators have officially recalled Frédérick Gaudreau from the Milwaukee Admirals. This news follows that of Marek Mazanec being recalled Thursday – the day after the Admirals were eliminated from the 2017 AHL Calder Cup Playoffs.
Gaudreau’s work since the 2015-16 season with the Admirals has been among the top of the top. His skill level as well as defensive and skating abilities were easy to spot when he arrived from the QMJHL as an undrafted AHL signing prior to the 2014-15 season but his offense jumped up in his sophomore campaign and increased even further this past season.
During the 2016-17 season, Gaudreau produced 48 points (25 goals, 23 assists) in 66 games with the Admirals in the AHL. He also logged his first career games in the NHL as a member of the Predators where he tallied an assist from 9 games. The soon to be 24-year old forward finished the Admirals recent playoff run as their leading scorer with 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist) in 3 games.
Prior to traveling from Milwaukee to Nashville we had the chance to speak with Gaudreau during the Admirals’ Exit Day. These were his comments on the Admirals season and more.
