The Nashville Predators sent Alexander Sulzer back to Milwaukee. It is unclear if it is just for tonight's game or if it will be a longer stay.
In my opinion, in the competition for the sixth D-man slot, it is not even close. Cody Franson brings far more to the table offensively and has surprised everyone with how few major rookie mistakes he has made on defense.
Here is the full release from the Predators...
