Predators recall Hornqvist

From the Nashville Predators:

Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Patric Hornqvist from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League. To make room on the roster for Hornqvist, defenseman Alexander Sulzer was placed on the injured reserve list.

Hornqvist, 22 (1/1/87) has seven points (2g-5a) in 15 games with the Predators this season. He was assigned to the Admirals on Nov. 20, and posted 23 points (9g-14a) in 33 games with Nashville’s primary development affiliate. The Sollentuna, Sweden native is just the ninth player to appear in an NHL contest after being selected with the final pick of an entry draft – he was chosen by the Predators with their seventh choice (230th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft.

Hornqvist, it was hoped, was to provide some goal-scoring from the wing, and struggled in that regard during his first stint in Nashville.  He appears likely to play in place of Jordin Tootoo, who injured his wrist in a game last week in Calgary.  Alexander Sulzer separated his shoulder in just his 2nd NHL game in Vancouver on January 28.
