Nashville, Tenn. (December 1, 2015) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has recalled forward Cody Bass from Milwaukee (AHL).
Bass, 28 (1/7/87), has four points (4a) and a team-leading 45 penalty minutes in 19 games this season for the Admirals. The 6-foot-0, 205-pound native of Owen Sound, Ontario, native has appeared in 49 career NHL games with Ottawa (where he was a teammate of Mike Fisher) and Columbus - most recently with the Blue Jackets in 2013-14 - posting five points (2g-3a) and 71 penalty minutes.
