Milwaukee, WI--Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forwards Gabriel Bourque and Eric Nystrom to Milwaukee (AHL) on Long-Term Injury Loans.
Bourque has missed the Predators last 48 games after leaving the team’s Nov. 27 game at Philadelphia with an upper-body injury. In 22 NHL games in 2015-16, the Rimouski, Quebec native has four points (1g-3a). Nashville's ninth choice, 132nd overall (fifth round), in the 2009 Entry Draft, Bourque appeared in two games for the Admirals during a conditioning assignment last month, and has 64 points (27g-37a) in 120 career AHL games.
Nystrom has missed Nashville’s last 21 games with a broken foot sustained on Jan. 26 at Vancouver. In 40 games for the Predators this season, the 6-1, 200-pound winger has seven goals/points. The Syosset, New York native last appeared in the AHL with Houston in 2011-12, and has 42 points (21g-21a) in 109 career AHL contests.
Both are expected to suit up for the Admirals this weekend when they host Charlotte (Friday and Saturday) and travel to Chicago (Sunday).
