Nashville Predators Recall Beck From Milwaukee, Reassign Forsberg
Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Taylor Beck from Milwaukee (AHL) and has assigned forward Filip Forsberg to the Admirals.
Beck, 22 (5/13/91), has posted five points (3g-2a) in eight games for Milwaukee in 2013-14, helping the Admirals to a 6-0-2 record. The 6-2, 206-pound right wing saw his first NHL action with Nashville a season ago, amassing seven points (3g-4a) in 16 games. Nashville’s fourth choice, 70th overall (third round), in the 2009 Entry Draft also led the 2012-13 Ads in points (11g-30a-41pts), assists and ranked second in power-play points (3g-9a-12pts) despite playing in only 50 of the team’s 76 games.
The Nashville Predators continue their franchise-record 17-day road trip tomorrow night when they take on the Winnipeg Jets at 7 p.m. CT (102.5 FM The Game, FOX SportSouth). Following the completion of their seven-game trip which still has stops in New York (to face the Islanders), New Jersey and Pittsburgh, the Preds return home to Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, Nov. 16, to face the Chicago Blackhawks.
