Below is the press release from the Nashville Predators.
Nashville, Tenn. – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Colton Sissons (@colton_es15) from Milwaukee (AHL).
Sissons, 20 (11/5/93), paces the Admirals in goals and points (16g-12a-28pts), in addition to being tied for second among all AHL skaters in game-winning goals (5) during his first professional season, and was one of three rookies named to the 2014 AHL All-Star Team earlier this month. The 6-1, 189-pound native of North Vancouver, B.C., was Nashville's second choice, 50th overall (second round), in the 2012 Entry Draft and spent the previous three seasons (2010-13) with the Kelowna Rockets, amassing 149 points (71g-79a) and 162 penalty minutes in 182 Western Hockey League games.
The re-call of Sissons means one thing: Matt Cullen and Viktor Stalberg are injured more severely than was once believed. Both have upper body injuries and will likely be out for tomorrow's match in Winnipeg. Taylor Beck and Sissons will fill in the holes in the lineup.
