The Nashville Predators announced the recall of Kyle Wilson from Milwaukee today. He had played 34 games at the NHL level with Washington and Columbus and was signed as a free agent by the Preds during the off-season.

The move became necessarily after Blake Geoffrion left last night's game in Edmonton and did not appear ready to return in the next few days. The injury left the Predators with only 20 healthy bodies so a recall appeared likely.

NASHVILLE PREDATORS RECALL FORWARD KYLE WILSON

Nashville, Tenn. (November 29, 2011) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled Kyle Wilson from Milwaukee (AHL).

Wilson, 26 (12/15/84), leads the Admirals in assists (9) and is tied for the team lead in points (13) through 17 games in 2011-12. The Oakville, Ont., native drafted 272nd (ninth round) by the Minnesota Wild in the 2004 Entry Draft has also appeared in 34 NHL games with Washington and Columbus since 2009-10, registering 13 points (4g-9a). The 6-0, 200-pounder spent four seasons at Colgate University (ECAC) from 2002-06, recording 101 points (46g-55a) in 139 games.

After doubling up on the Oil last night with a 2-1 victory in Edmonton, the Predators look to make it back-to-back wins when they take on the Calgary Flames tonight at the Scotiabank Saddledome (8:30 p.m., FS-TN, 102.5 The Game).
