The Nashville Predators made several moves today lowering their roster to 21 active players.
Ryan Suter was placed on injured reserve due to the "lower body injury" suffered early in last night's game. Jamie Lundmark cleared waivers and was assigned to Milwaukee.
In a separate move, based on this translated French post, it appears that Steve Begin is headed for Milwaukee. TSN reports that he was placed on waivers so that he could be recalled when his conditioning is deemed sufficient. However, later in the day, Bob McKenzie reported that it was a depth move for the Predators. There has been no official word from the Predators on the Begin signing.
Here is the Predators official release on Lundmark and Suter...
NASHVILLE PREDATORS ASSIGN FORWARD JAMIE LUNDMARK TO MILWAUKEE
Nashville, Tenn. (October 20, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has activated forward Jamie Lundmark from injured reserve and assigned him to Milwaukee (AHL). The team also placed forward Ryan Suter on injured reserve, joining forwards Marcel Goc and Matthew Lombardi.
The transactions leave Nashville’s active roster at 21 players – 13 forwards, six defensemen and two goalies.
The Predators – one of only two teams left in the NHL to earn a point in every game this season (3-0-2) – will look to extend that streak when they host superstar Sidney Crosby and the 2009 Stanley Cup Champion Pittsburgh Penguins tomorrow night at Bridgestone Arena (7 p.m. CT, 102.9 FM The Buzz, Fox Sports Tennessee). Thursday’s game is also Hockey Fights Cancer Night in Smashville with the Predators donating 25 percent of every single-game ticket sold to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, in addition to holding countless other awareness and fundraising events throughout the evening. Tickets are still available for both contests and may be purchased at the Bridgestone Arena box office, by calling (615) 770-PUCK (7825) or online via ticketmaster.com or nashvillepredators.com.
