Milwaukee, WI— Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Nick Spaling to Milwaukee. In addition, the Admirals have recalled forward Ian McKenzie from Cincinnati of the ECHL.
Spaling was recalled for the first time in his career on Dec. 15, and has appeared in the Predators last 21 games, posting three assists – including one last night in a 4-3 victory over Atlanta – while averaging 10:42 of ice time. Nashville’s third choice, 58th overall (second round) in the 2007 Entry Draft is also averaging 1:40 of shorthanded ice time in his inaugural NHL campaign, fifth-best among rookie forwards. The Palmerston, Ont., native has seven points (1g-6a) in 27 games for the Admirals in 2009-10.
McKenzie scored the game-winning goal in the Ads first game of the year, his only point in 19 games with Milwaukee. He has totaled a goal and three assists and 16 penalty minutes in 11 games with the Cyclones.
The Admirals are back in action today when they host the Hamilton Bulldogs at 4:00 pm. Miracle on Ice Members Buzz Schneider and Bob Suter will be at the game to sign autographs and greet fans.
