Predators extend affiliate agreement with AHL's Milwaukee Admirals through 2016-17 season

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Nashville Predators have extended their affiliation agreement with the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals through the 2016-17 season.

The Predators announced the extension Thursday.

Milwaukee has been an affiliate for Nashville since the Predators' inception as a franchise in 1998-99. More than 140 players have appeared in at least one game for both teams in the past 16 seasons.

The Admirals have reached the Calder Cup playoffs each of the last 12 seasons.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
