In a release this afternoon, the Nashville Predators reassigned Triston Grant to the Milwaukee AHL affiliate. With the return of Colin Wilson and the potential return of J. P. Dumont in the near future the move was needed to free up a roster spot.
Barry Trotz appeared pleased with his effort so there is a good chance that he will return at some point later in the season. Grant played three games and brought a "Smashville" attitude to the ice while he was here as Trotz described his play last week.
Here is the text of the Predators release...
