Preds Recall Halischuk and Mueller From AHL
- Team also places Francis Bouillon and Marek Svatos on Injured Reserve -

Nashville, Tenn. (January 31, 2011) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forwards Chris Mueller and Matt Halischuk from Milwaukee (AHL). The team has also placed defenseman Francis Bouillon and forward Marek Svatos on Injured Reserve.

Halischuk, 22 (6/1/88), played his first five games as a Predator during the club’s six-game road trip just before the All-Star break, posting three points (1g-2a) and a +3 rating while logging 10:08 per game. The Toronto, Ont., native, acquired from New Jersey in the offseason, made his Nashville debut on Jan. 16 at Chicago, then recorded his first career two-point/assist performance at Phoenix two nights later. Halischuk then notched his first goal with the team on Jan. 20 in the Predators’ 5-1 victory at Colorado. The 6-0, 185-pound winger has 17 points (9g-8a) in 31 games for the Admirals in 2010-11.

Mueller, 24 (3/6/86), signed a one-year contract with the Predators on Dec. 27 and has played in 13 of the club’s 15 games since that date, posting three assists while averaging 8:31 of ice time. He notched his first career NHL point/assist on Jan. 16 at Chicago and recorded his first multi-point/assist outing the following game, a 5-2 victory at Phoenix. The West Seneca, N.Y., native ranks second on the Admirals in goals (13), and fourth in points (21) despite playing in only 35 of the team’s 47 games.

The Predators take to Bridgestone Arena ice for the first time in more than two weeks tomorrow night when they host the Calgary Flames at 7 p.m. (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.9 FM The Buzz). The game is a Daily's Super Tuesday night with two upper level tickets for $42 or two lower level tickets for $92. There are also special $2 concession stands and a reduced $2 ticket service fee. In addition, Daily's is offering a $5 coupon good towards gas or merchandise to fans who purchase Super Tuesday tickets. Tickets may be purchased at the Bridgestone Arena box office, by calling (615) 770-PUCK (7825) or online via nashvillepredators.com.

Off the ice, the Predators are gearing up for several key fundraising events. The inaugural Predators Foundation GnashVegas Casino Gala and Auction, presented by Grand Avenue Luxury Transport Services, takes place on Thursday, Feb. 10 over the ice at Bridgestone Arena and the Fangtastic 5k, presented by Action Nissan, which takes a winding tour through downtown Nashville, kicks off on Feb. 12 at 10 a.m. For more information on these and other off-ice happenings, visit nashvillepredators.com.
