Nashville, Tenn. (December 26, 2010) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Linus Klasen from Milwaukee (AHL).

Klasen, 24 (2/19/86), is tied for sixth in the American Hockey League in goals (15) and game-winning goals (3), in addition to ranking fourth in the League in power-play markers (7, tie) during his first North American professional season. The Stockholm, Sweden native also paces the Admirals in points with 27 (15g-12a) through 29 games. Signed as a free agent on April 20, 2010, Klasen made his NHL debut with the Predators during his first and only recall on Oct. 30 at Detroit, playing 6:22. The 5-8, 178-pound winger spent the last three seasons with Sodertalje of the Swedish Elitserien, tying for fifth in points (19g-32a-51pts) a season ago.

Following tonight’s 6 p.m. CT contest at St. Louis (102.9 FM The Buzz, FOX Sports Tennessee), the Predators return to Smashville on Tuesday night to host the Dallas Stars (7 p.m. CT, 102.9 FM The Buzz).
