We just received a tweet from our friends at Admirals Short Shifts that indicated Ryan Jones had been recalled from Milwaukee by the Nashville Predators. We are awaiting official confirmation from the Preds.
This is a somewhat surprising development considering that Jones has played 15 games with the Ads and only has 4 goals and an assist to show for his efforts. He is also a -6 for his time in Milwaukee.
Jones started the season with Nashville where he played eight games with no goals or assists and was -2.
The call-up may be related to Dave Scatchard being scratched the last two games due to an unknown upper body type injury. We will add the Predators release when available.
Here is the official release from the Predators...
