Petter Granberg to Join the Ads
Milwaukee, WI--Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has activated defenseman Petter Granberg from the non-roster list and sent him on a conditioning assignment to Milwaukee.
Granberg has yet to suit up in 2015-16 due to offseason surgery, but has eight NHL games to his credit with the Maple Leafs (0 pts, 6 penalty minutes) and 126 AHL games with the Toronto Marlies (3g-19a-22pts, 58 penalty minutes) since his first North American professional season in 2013-14. Prior to crossing the Atlantic, the 6-foot-3, 201-pound blueliner split time between Skelleftea’s Swedish Hockey League and Junior League teams, winning an SHL title in 2013, and earning silver medals in 2011 and 2012.
Toronto’s fourth selection, 116th overall (fourth round), in the 2010 Entry Draft, Granberg helped team Sweden win the 2013 World Championship and the 2012 World Junior Championship, as well as earning a silver medal at the 2010 World Under-18 Championship.
Granberg will not be available for the Admirals when they face Grand Rapids tonight. He’ll join Milwaukee for a two-game set in Winnipeg against the Manitoba Moose this weekend. He will look to make his home debut next Tuesday, December 15 against the Chicago Wolves in Amtrak Rivalry action.
