As expected, Predators rookie defenseman Jon Blum and forward Blake Geoffrion have been recalled from the Milwaukee Admirals. They were sent down last week in order to get some playing time.
Blum had been a healthy scratch for the first time in his NHL career and Geoffrion was returning from an injury. Instead of keep the players with the big club, limiting their ice time only to practices, it was the team’s philosophy to send them to Milwaukee where they’d log valuable minutes during game action.
Both Blum and Geoffrion played in three games during their cup of coffee with the Admirals. The defenseman registered two goals while Geoffrion collected an assist, ironically on Blum’s first marker.
Also of note, tonight at 11:00pm Central begins the NHL’s annual holiday roster freeze. No trades can be made from December 20 through Tuesday, December 27.
The Predators’ official press release is below.
