Yonkman, 28 (4/1/81), did not dress for the Predators during his six-day recall. Milwaukee’s captain ranks second on the club with 112 penalty minutes, in addition to posting nine points (2g-7a), in 52 American League games this season.
The Predators will now enjoy a two-and-a-half week break from game action for the 2010 Olympics, where six players – Shea Weber
(Canada), Ryan Suter
(United States), Patric Hornqvist
(Sweden), Martin Erat
(Czech Republic), Marcel Goc (Germany) and Alexander Sulzer (Germany) will represent Nashville on the sporting world’s biggest stage. The Predators next action comes March 2 at home against the Edmonton Oilers, their first of 10 games at the Sommet Center next month. Tickets to all 10 games – which ties the franchise record for most home games in a month – and all regular season contests are now on sale and can be purchased by logging onto nashvillepredators.com. Tickets are also available by calling (615) 770-PUCK and at all Ticketmaster locations.
