Milwaukee, WI—Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Cal O’Reilly from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

The Admirals travel to Iowa on Saturday before returning to the Bradley Center for a 4:00 pm contest against Houston.
