Franson Reassigned to Milwaukee
Dec 13, 2009
Milwaukee, WI–Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned defenseman Cody Franson to Milwaukee (AHL).
Franson ranks seventh among rookie defensemen in points, with seven (2g-5a) in 24 games since making his NHL debut on Oct. 17 at Washington. He also leads the Predators, and is tied for fourth among rookie defensemen in plus/minus (+5). Nashville’s third choice, 79th overall (third round), in the 2005 Entry Draft, Franson recorded his first career NHL point/assist on Oct. 21 at Boston and scored his first NHL goal the following night in a 6-5 overtime victory at Ottawa. The Sicamous, B.C., native started the 2009-10 season with the Admirals, posting two points (1g-1a) in the club’s first three games.
Franson joins the Admirals in the midst of the team’s current four game road swing, as they battle the Toronto Marlies Monday night. The Ads return home on Sunday, December 20 at 4:00 pm at the Bradley Center. For ticket information fans can call the Admirals office at (414) 227-0550 or check out the team’s new website at www.milwaukeeadmirals.com.
