- Also place forward Filip Forsberg on injured reserve -

Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Joe Piskula from Milwaukee (AHL) and placed forward Filip Forsberg on injured reserve.

Piskula, 29 (7/5/84), has five assists, 12 penalty minutes and a +3 rating while appearing in all 18 of the Admirals 2013-14 contests. He was the last defenseman assigned to Milwaukee before the start of the regular season on Sept. 29. The Antigo, Wis., native was acquired by the Predators from Calgary on Feb. 28, 2013, and has 10 career NHL games to his credit – five with Calgary in 2011-12 and five with Los Angeles in 2006-07. The 6-3, 214-pound blueliner has also played 411 AHL games in six seasons at the level, amassing 79 points (9g-70a) and 347 penalty minutes. Piskula played 112 games during a three-year career at the University of Wisconsin from 2004-07, posting 22 points (3g-19a) and 80 penalty minutes. In 2006, he helped the Badgers claim the NCAA title.

The Nashville Predators play six of their next eight games at Bridgestone Arena, beginning tonight at 7 p.m CT as the Preds host the Philadelphia Flyers (FOX Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game). The fun begins at 5 p.m. with a Smashville-style plaza party, presented by Lee Company and partnering with 102.5 The Game, Dunkin' Donuts and TJ Martell Foundation that will feature the always-popular smash car, inflatables, face painting, donut decorating and more! The Nashville Predators are offering half-priced upper-bowl tickets for tonight’s game only. Tonight is also a McDonald’s Family Four Pack night with tickets starting at just $33. McDonald’s Family Four Pack tickets, available for every Saturday and Sunday home game, allow you to receive four gold hats and four items from McDonald’s with every McDonald’s Family Four Pack purchased.
