Nashville, Tenn. (October 31, 2009) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Andreas Thuresson (an-DRAY-uhs THUHR-eh-suhn) from Milwaukee (AHL).
Thuresson, 21 (11/18/87), has five points in nine games for the Admirals in 2009-10, and scored the game-winning goal in Milwaukee’s 2-1 victory against Rockford last night. The Kristianstad, Sweden native notched 29 points (14g-15a) in 74 games for Milwaukee in 2008-09, and 18 points (11g-7a) in 77 contests as the American Hockey League’s youngest player in 2007-08. Nashville's seventh choice, 144th overall (fifth round), in the 2007 Entry Draft has yet to appear in an NHL contest.
