Beck and Forsberg Switch Spots
Milwaukee, WI--Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Filip Forsberg from Milwaukee (AHL) and assigned forward Taylor Beck to the Admirals.
Beck played in two games with the Predators in his first recall of the year. He has posted five points (3g-2a) in eight games for Milwaukee in 2013-14. The 6-2, 206-pound right wing saw his first NHL action with Nashville a season ago, amassing seven points (3g-4a) in 16 games. Nashville’s fourth choice, 70th overall (third round), in the 2009 Entry Draft also led the 2012-13 Ads in points (11g-30a-41pts), assists and ranked second in power-play points (3g-9a-12pts) despite playing in only 50 of the team’s 76 games.
Forsberg posted six points (1g-5a) during a four-game stint with Milwaukee, reaching the scoresheet in each game. The 6-1, 186-pound winger started the season with Nashville, amassing five points (1g-4a) in 11 games, including an assist in his most recent contest, a 6-4 victory over Colorado on Nov. 6. The Predators have posted an 8-2-1 record with the Ostervala, Sweden native in the lineup in 2013-14.
Beck and the Admirals are back in action on Friday night when they host the Chicago Wolves at 7:00 pm at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. All veterans and active military are free and the Ads will honor Medal of Honor recipient Gary Wetzel.
