The Nashville Predators have recalled winger Daniel Bang from the Milwaukee Admirals.
With Brandon Yip injured in the last game, Bang is set to become the fourth Predators player to make their NHL debut this season.
Recalling the Kista, Sweden, native leaves the Admirals without six of their top 12 scorers. Taylor Beck, Austin Watson, Chris Mueller and Victor Bartley are already in Nashville and Michael Latta was included in the Martin Erat trade to the Washington Capitals.
Bang signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Predators on June 1, 2012. This is his first season in North America.
