Nashville, Tenn. (October 17, 2017) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has recalled forward Frederick Gaudreau from the American Hockey League's Milwaukee Admirals. The team has also placed defenseman Yannick Weber on Injured Reserve.
Through three games with the Admirals, Gaudreau is tied for the team lead in assists (3) and points (4) after posting 48 points (25g-23a) in 66 games with Milwaukee last season. The Bromont, Quebec, native made his NHL debut on Oct. 22, 2016 versus Pittsburgh and appeared in nine games with the Predators in 2016-17, recording an assist. The 6-foot, 179-pound center was a crucial part of Nashville's run to the Stanley Cup Final last season as he scored three goals in eight games and posted a +2 rating. He became the first player since Chicago's John Harms in 1944 to score the first three goals (regular season and playoffs) of his NHL career in the Stanley Cup Final.
Never drafted, Gaudreau tallied 50 goals, 84 assists and 134 points in three seasons with the QMJHL's Shawinigan Cataractes and Drummondville Voltigeurs, winning the Memorial Cup in 2012. He has 105 points (45g-60a) in 187 career AHL games with the Admirals.
