Preds Recall Mueller From AHL; Place Smithson On IR
Nashville, Tenn. (January 14, 2012) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Chris Mueller from Milwaukee (AHL) and placed forward Jerred Smithson on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 7.

Mueller, 25, leads the Admirals in points (15g-11a-26pts) and goals through 33 games in 2011-12. This is the West Seneca, N.Y., native’s second recall to Nashville this season – he played a pair of NHL games Dec. 3 (against his hometown Buffalo Sabres) and 6 (vs. Phoenix). A season ago, the 5-11, 203-pound forward appeared in his first 15 NHL contests, registering three assists. Signed as a free agent on Dec. 27, 2010, Mueller posted 104 points (42g-62a) in 166 games with Michigan State University from 2004-08, and helped the Spartans win the 2007 NCAA National Championship, ranking fifth in points (3g-2a) during the NCAA Tournament.

The Predators will try to notch their seventh win in the last eight games when they host the Philadelphia Flyers for just the seventh time ever tonight at Bridgestone Arena (7 p.m. CT, FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game). Tickets are still available and may be purchased by visiting nashvillepredators.com, ticketmaster.com or by calling 615-770-PUCK (7825).
