Predators Recall Gaudreau,
Ads Summon Allard
Milwaukee, WI--Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile today announced that the club has recalled forward Frederick Gaudreau from the Milwaukee Admirals.
In addition, the Admirals have recalled defenseman Frederic Allard from the Norfolk Admirals (ECHL).
Through three games with the Admirals, Gaudreau is tied for the team lead in assists (3) and points (4) after posting 48 points (25g-23a) in 66 games with Milwaukee last season. The 6-foot, 179-pound center was a crucial part of Nashville's run to the Stanley Cup Final last season as he scored three goals in eight games and posted a +2 rating. He became the first player since Chicago's John Harms in 1944 to score the first three goals (regular season and playoffs) of his NHL career in the Stanley Cup Final.
Gaudreau has 105 points (45g-60a) in 187 career AHL games with the Admirals.
Allard made his professional debut with Norfolk last weekend, posting two penalty minutes and a +1 rating in three games.
The Admirals, who have won their first three games of the season, kick off the home portion of their schedule on Friday, October 20th at 7 pm against the Hershey Bears at Panther Arena.
