Matt Halischuk Reassigned to Milwaukee

In a move that is a result of the Nashville Predators acquisition of Mike Fisher, combined with a return to health of Marcel Goc. the Preds sent Matt Halischuk to Milwaukee.

Halischuk played well during his 11 game stint in Nashville and proved himself as a much needed depth player should the Predators need help later in the season.
