Nashville, TN - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Saturday that the club has activated defenseman Roman Josi from injured reserve and assigned forward Mike Ribeiro to Milwaukee (AHL).
Josi has missed the previous nine games due to injury. He has earned 22 points (5g-17a) in 42 games this season, and is third on the team in power-play points with nine. Josi ranks 10th among NHL defensemen and fourth in the team in shots on goal (124). He is first on the team - and ninth in the NHL - in average time on ice per game (25:14).
The Preds return to the ice tonight against Detroit at Bridgestone Arena. The game will be televised at 7:00 p.m. CT on FOX Sports Tennessee and can be heard on the Predators' flagship radio station, 102.5 The Game.
