Jan 31, 2011
Milwaukee, WI—Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forwards Chris Mueller and Matt Halischuk from Milwaukee.
Halischuk played his first five games as a Predator during the club’s six-game road trip just before the All-Star break, posting three points (1g-2a) and a +3 rating while logging 10:08 per game. The Toronto, Ont., native, acquired from New Jersey in the offseason, made his Nashville debut on Jan. 16 at Chicago, then recorded his first career two-point/assist performance at Phoenix two nights later. Halischuk then notched his first goal with the team on Jan. 20 in the Predators’ 5-1 victory at Colorado. The 6-0, 185-pound winger has 17 points (9g-8a) in 31 games for the Admirals in 2010-11.
Mueller signed a one-year contract with the Predators on Dec. 27 and has played in 13 of the club’s 15 games since that date, posting three assists while averaging 8:31 of ice time. He notched his first career NHL point/assist on Jan. 16 at Chicago and recorded his first multi-point/assist outing the following game, a 5-2 victory at Phoenix. The West Seneca, N.Y., native ranks second on the Admirals in goals (13), and fourth in points (21) despite playing in only 35 of the team’s 47 games.
