NASHVILLE PREDATORS RECALL ARVIDSSON FROM MILWAUKEE
Nashville, Tenn. (February 1, 2016) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Viktor Arvidsson from Milwaukee (AHL).
Arvidsson, 22 (4/8/92), has five points (3g-2a) in 24 games for the Predators in 2015-16 after going scoreless in his first six career NHL contests a season ago. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound native of Skelleftea, Sweden’s first career goal was the game winner in Nashville’s season-opening victory over Carolina on Oct. 8, and he recorded back-to-back tallies on Dec. 5 at Detroit and Dec. 7 at Boston, with the latter also being a game-winning goal. Nashville’s fifth choice, 112th overall (fourth round), in the 2014 Entry Draft, Arvidsson has 18 points (8g-10a) in 17 games with the Admirals this season, with six of those markers coming on the power play. He was named to the 2015 AHL All-Rookie Team in his first season in North America after ranking third among league rookies and first on the Milwaukee Admirals in points (22g-33a-55pts).
The Nashville Predators return to action from the All-Star Break to play against the St. Louis Blues tomorrow, Tuesday, Feb. 2 (7 p.m., TV: FOX Sports Tennessee; Radio: 102.5 The Game).
