Nashville, Tenn. (March 4, 2009) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has reassigned forward Cal O’Reilly and defenseman Alexander Sulzer to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.
O’Reilly, 22 (9/30/86), played his first two career NHL games during a five-day recall, posting an assist in his National Hockey League debut on Saturday vs. Detroit. With the Admirals this season, he ranks among the AHL leaders in assists (46) and points (57). Sulzer, 24 (5/30/84), sustained a separated shoulder during the first period of his only game during his most recent recall, and missed the past 17 games due to injury.
