Nashville, Tenn. (December 22, 2015) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced Tuesday that the club has recalled defenseman Petter Granberg (PEH-tuhr GRAN-buhrg) from his conditioning assignment with Milwaukee (AHL).
Granberg, 23 (8/27/92), posted an assist and four penalty minutes during his six-game stint with Milwaukee, helping the Admirals to a 4-2-0 record. Claimed on waivers on Nov. 22, the 6-foot-3, 201-pound blueliner has eight career NHL games to his credit with the Maple Leafs (0 pts, 6 penalty minutes) and 132 AHL games (3g-20a-23pts, 62 penalty minutes) since his first North American professional season in 2013-14. Prior to crossing the Atlantic, Granberg split time between Skelleftea’s Swedish Hockey League and Junior League teams, winning an SHL title in 2013, and earning silver medals in 2011 and 2012.
Toronto’s fourth selection, 116th overall (fourth round), in the 2010 Entry Draft, Granberg helped team Sweden win the 2013 World Championship (along with Predators forward Calle Jarnkrok) and the 2012 World Junior Championship (along with Predators forward Filip Forsberg), as well as earning a silver medal at the 2010 World Under-18 Championship.
Following the holiday break, the Nashville Predators look to push their winning streak to three games when the Detroit Red Wings make their lone visit to Smashville on Saturday night at 7 p.m. CT (TV: FOX Sports Tennessee; Radio: 102.5 The Game).
