The Nashville Predators have recalled Cody Bass from the Milwaukee Admirals. This move comes a day after the “Black Aces” made their way up from Milwaukee to help bolster the Predators run in the 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
This season started off so well for Bass as he made the Predators roster to begin the 2016-17 season. Things then went downhill and all came to a serious injury at the end of the 2016 portion of the Admirals calendar. He injured his hamstring on 12/28/16 and required surgery. That would sideline him for the rest of the Admirals regular season as well as the playoffs. He missed the final 50 games that the Admirals played.
What is encouraging though for Bass was he started to really practice hard at the end of the season. If the Admirals playoff run lasted longer there was a chance that he could have factored in with a deep run. Sadly, that wasn’t the case. But his leadership qualities off the ice continued on as he stayed around the team at season’s end to assist where he could. Bass will still be with the organization in 2017-18 and should be fully fit when the season begins.
