As had been anticipated, Jon Blum and Blake Geoffrion were recalled from Milwaukee before the NHL no movement period went in force from December 19 to 27 to give the Predators a spare player on both offense and defense as they play four critical games during the nine day period.

The pair played in three games with the Admirals over the weekend while the Predators played Saturday's game against St. Louis with only twenty players.

Blum scored two goals on five shots and was a (-1) in the three contests. Geoffrion had an assist and added two shots and was even on the plus/minus.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS RECALL GEOFFRION AND BLUM FROM MILWAUKEE

Nashville, Tenn. (December 19, 2011) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Blake Geoffrion and defenseman Jonathon Blum from Milwaukee (AHL).

Geoffrion, 23 (2/3/88), has two assists in 19 games for the Predators this season. He was assigned to the Admirals after missing six NHL games from Nov. 29-Dec. 10 due to an upper body injury, where he notched an assist in three AHL games.

Blum, 22 (1/30/89), has five points (2g-3a) in 27 games for the Predators in 2011-12. He also spent three games with Milwaukee, scoring a pair of goals.

After Saturday’s 2-1 shootout win over the St. Louis Blues, the Preds look to make to make it six-straight victories when they head to the nation’s capital to take on the Washington Capitals tomorrow night (6 p.m. Fox Sports Tennessee, 102.5 The Game). The Preds return home on Thursday when they face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets for a College Night showdown in Smashville (7 p.m., 102.5 The Game).
