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).
