Found October 30, 2011 on Inside Smashville:

Word out of Milwaukee Sunday morning was that Ryan Thang was called up to Nashville as a result of the Francois Beauchemin hit on Mike Fisher in the first period of Saturday night’s game against the Anaheim Ducks.

That Thang has been called up to the Predators, means that Fisher is expected to miss some time. There was no update available about Fisher after the game. However, replay shows that Fisher’s head did hit the ice pretty hard when he fell.

Sergei Kostitsyn is also out of the lineup with what Head Coach Barry Trotz called a muscle issue, but is making the trip to Chicago with the team.

Thang recorded 41 points a season ago with Milwaukee, scoring 14 goals and added 27 assists in 78 games. This season, the right wing has 6 points in 7 games with 5 goals and 1 assist.
