Nashville, Tenn. (October 8, 2009) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Triston Grant from Milwaukee (AHL).
Grant, 25 (2/2/84), has appeared in eight career NHL contests, all with Philadelphia in 2006-07, registering one assist and 10 penalty minutes. A season ago, the Neepawa, Man., native posted 11 points (3g-8a) and a team-high 153 penalty minutes in 55 games with the Admirals, and was one of just four AHLers to post more than 150 penalty minutes and a plus/minus rating in double digits (+11). The 6-1, 210-pound left wing scored a goal in the Admirals season-opening, 3-2 win over Chicago last weekend, and has 49 points (21g-28a) and 723 penalty minutes in 253 career AHL games with Milwaukee and the Philadelphia Phantoms since 2005.
Coming off a season-opening shootout win at Dallas on Saturday, the Predators host the Colorado Avalanche in their 2009-10 home opener tonight at 7 p.m. at the Sommet Center. Tickets to this game, and all other regular season contests are now on sale and can be purchased by logging onto nashvillepredators.com.
