Preds Assign Mattias Ekholm To Brynas Of Swedish Elite League
Nashville, Tenn. (October 22, 2011) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced tonight that the club has assigned defenseman Mattias Ekholm to Brynas IF of the Elitserien (Swedish Elite League).

Ekholm, 21 (5/24/90), suited up for two of Nashville’s first six regular season games – his first action in North America – going pointless while averaging 12:25 of ice time. The 6-4, 204-pound blueliner will be playing his second season with Brynas in 2011-12 after posting 33 points (10g-23a) in 55 games in 2010-11 en route to winning the Swedish Elite League Rookie of the Year award.

The Nashville Predators wind down a six-day/three-game tour of Western Canada this afternoon in Calgary (3 p.m. on FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game) before kicking off a three-game home stand on Tuesday when the San Jose Sharks come calling (7 p.m. on FSTN, 102.5 The Game). It is a Daily’s Super Tuesday Game, where fans can purchase two upper level tickets for $49 or two lower level tickets for $99. The week continues with games on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning and Saturday against the Anaheim Ducks (both games at 7 p.m. on 102.5 The Game). Limited tickets for next week’s games are still available and can be purchased by visiting nashvillepredators.com, ticketmaster.com or by calling 615-770-PUCK (7825).
