Predators recall Beech and Finley

Nashville, Tenn. (December 9, 2005) - Nashville Predators Executive Vice President/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Kris Beech and goaltender Brian Finley from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. 

Beech, 24 (2/5/81), leads Milwaukee in scoring with 22 points (9g-13a) in 22 games.  The 6-2, 208-pound center was acquired by Nashville from Pittsburgh for a conditional Entry Draft selection on September 9, 2005.  The former first-round pick (seventh overall in 1999) posted 10 goals and 17 assists (10g-17a-27pts) in 99 NHL games with Washington and Pittsburgh from 2000-2004.

Finley, 24 (7/3/81), was recently named the Koho/AHL Goaltender of the Month for November 2005 after going 5-0-0 with three shutouts, a 1.16 goals-against average and a .962 save percentage in six appearances.  For the season, the 6-3, 201-pound Sault Ste. Marie native has notched a 6-1-0 record in nine games, ranks third in the AHL with a 1.99 GAA and ranks fourth in the league with a .929 save percentage.  He was originally Nashville's first-round pick, sixth overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

The Predators' roster stands at 21 with five players (Greg Johnson, David Legwand, Danny Markov, Scott Nichol and Scott Walker) on injured reserve.

Nashville (18-5-3) heads to Tampa Bay to take on the 2004 Stanley Cup Champion Lightning (16-10-3) on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. CT at the St. Pete Times Forum.  The game will be televised locally on FSN South and broadcast on SportsRadio 560-AM.
