Nashville, Tenn. (October 19, 2019) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/GM David Poile announced today that the team has assigned forward Daniel Carr to Milwaukee (AHL). Additionally, the team has recalled forwards Miikka Salomaki and Yakov Trenin from the Admirals.
Salomaki, 26 (3/9/93), has a goal and an assist in three games with Milwaukee to begin the 2019-20 campaign. The 5-foot-11, 203-pound right wing is a veteran of 162 NHL games - all with the Predators - after being drafted in the second round (52nd overall) by Nashville in the 2011 NHL Draft. Salomaki posted seven points (3g-4a) in 37 games with the Preds last season and added an assist in two Stanley Cup Playoff contests. The Raahe, Finland, native's 364 hits since the beginning of the 2015-16 season rank fourth among Preds skaters in that time span.
Trenin, 22 (1/13/97), leads the Admirals in points with five (4g-1a) and recorded back-to-back two-point outings on Oct. 11 at Grand Rapids (1g-1a) and Oct. 12 vs. Laval (2g). This is the first career NHL recall for Trenin, who set career highs in games played (74), goals (14), assists (19) and points (33) with the Admirals in 2018-19, his second full professional season. Prior to turning pro, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound center played three seasons for the QMJHL's Gatineau Olympiques, where he talied 195 points (74g-121a) in 169 games. Internationally, the Chelyabinsk, Russia, native represented his country at the 2017 World Junior Championship and logged four points (2g-2a) in seven contests.
