Kukla's Korner Hockey

But when the Predators reassigned Scottie Upshall and Shea Weber to Milwaukee for the Olympic break, and then had defenseman Jamie Allison claimed off waivers by Florida, it left Nashville with just 19 players on its NHL roster — one short of the league minimum.

Dallas interrupted those plans by claiming the 6-foot-1, 215-pound forward, who'd posted seven points and 74 penalty minutes in 35 games with the Predators this season.
