Sulzer, Scatchard Recalled by Nashville
Oct 20, 2009
Milwaukee, WI– Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Alexander Sulzer and forward Dave Scatchard from Milwaukee (AHL). The Predators also assigned defenseman Teemu Laakso to the Admirals.
Sulzer has six points (1g-5a) in five games for the Admirals in 2009-10, good for fifth (tied) among AHL defensemen. The Kaufbeuren, Germany native appeared in two NHL contests for the Predators a season ago – the first two games of his career – becoming the first German-born player to suit up for Nashville.
Scatchard has a team-leading three goals and 17 penalty minutes in four contests for Milwaukee this season, his first regular season action since he played 11 AHL contests with Milwaukee and Hartford in 2007-08. The Hinton, Alta., native has played in 635 career NHL games since the 1997-98 season, amassing 263 points (125g-138a) with Vancouver (1997-2000), the New York Islanders (2000-04), Boston (2005-06) and Phoenix (2005-07).
Laakso appeared in each of the Predators first seven games of the 2009-10 season, did not register a point and had two penalty minutes. Last season he skated in 42 games for the Admirals, recording nine points (2g-7a) and 50 penalty minutes.
The Admirals kick off the 2009-10 home portion of their schedule on Saturday night at 7:30 pm against the Manitoba Moose at the Bradley Center. All fans at the game will receive an Admirals magnet schedule for the 2009-10 season, courtesy of Pick ‘n Save and Old Orchard.
