Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has assigned forward Joonas Rask (YOH-nuhs RASK) to Milwaukee (AHL). Rask recently completed his fifth season in the Finnish Elite League with Jokerit.

Rask, 23 (3/24/90), posted 10 points (5g-5a) in 52 games with Jokerit in 2012-13.

He signed a two-year contract with Nashville on March 23, 2012 after being Nashville's seventh choice, 198th overall (seventh round), in the 2010 Entry Draft. The Savonlinna, Finland native is the younger brother of Boston Bruins netminder Tuukka Rask.

The Predators face off against the Dallas Stars tomorrow at 7 p.m. CT (SportSouth, 1676 HD, 26 SD and 102.5 FM The Game) for a College Night presented by Taco Bell, where college students who show their IDs at the door receive special ticket discounts.
