The Nashville Predators have officially recalled Alex Carrier, Jack Dougherty, Petter Granberg, Vladislav Kamenev, and Trevor Murphy from the Milwaukee Admirals. They will be joining the likes of Marek Mazanec and Frédérick Gaudreau by the Predators as part of the “Black Aces” from the Admirals.
Of the names going up to help bolster the Predators depth for their playoff push there are five players who have logged a game or more with the Predators in the NHL this season. You’d have to look at names such as Dougherty and Murphy as players who have yet to participate with the Predators as of yet.
This end-season recall for the group that played in the AHL at the end of the season helps to both give a look up at the NHL level as well as to provide depth on-ice during practice sessions and more for the Predators. For a player specifically like Dougherty, who has yet to get a recall until this moment, it offers a glimpse at the end goal being worked so hard for. It wouldn’t be clear if any would suit up for a game -but- the options now exist for the Predators thanks to revamped depth.
