Milwaukee, WI--Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forwards Pontus Aberg, Felix Girard and Mike Liambas from Milwaukee (AHL). In addition, the team assigned Vladislav Kamenev and Austin Watson to Milwaukee.
Watson spent parts of four seasons with the Admirals, most recently in 2014-15 when he led the team with 26 goals and was second with 44 points. He is fourth in Admirals AHL history with 68 goals and is one of only three players since the team joined the AHL in 2001 to have 20 or more goals in each of his first three seasons with the team. In 2015-16 the Ann Arbor, MI native tallied 10 points (3g-7a) in 57 games with the Predators.
Kamenev posted 15 goals and 22 assists for 37 points in 57 games with the Admirals last season, his first in North America. The Orsk, Russia native was selected to play in the AHL All-Star Classic and also captained Team Russia to their second consecutive silver medal at the World Junior Championships.
The Admirals will finish off the pre-season Saturday night when they travel to Chicago to take on the Wolves.
Milwaukee heads to San Antonio next weekend to open the regular season on Saturday, October 15 at 7 pm against the Rampage. The Ads commence their home schedule on Saturday, October 29 at 6 pm when they host the Iowa Wild at the UW-Milwaukee Panther Arena.
