I'm not sure if Linus Klasen had time for a cup of coffee in his brief NHL stay with the Predators, but he has been returned to Milwaukee after 6:22 minutes of play on Saturday night against the Wings.
I feel sure he will return as needed this season. Hopefully, this is a good sign that others are getting healthy and will be able to play on Wednesday against the Coyotes.
Here is the official release from the Predators...
