He skated in two games with Nashville during his NHL recall, but he didn't do anything to warrant fantasy attention.

The Predators have recalled Joe Piskula from the AHL for Saturday night's game against the Flyers.

Nashville has very few healthy defensemen at the moment so the summoning of Piskula makes perfect sense. That said, we don't expect Piskula to make a fantasy impact as he is neither offensive minded or pugillistic.

The Calgary Flames have sent defenseman Joe Piskula to Abbotsford of the AHL.

The Flames called Piskula up four weeks ago and he played five games in early December but has been a healthy scratch since December 10. The Flames want the 27-year-old to play so he heads back to the AHL. Piskula did not have a good run in the show as he was minus-five with no points in his short stay.

The Los Angeles Kings have sent Joe Piskula to the minors.

Piskula was put on waivers and passed through, allowing the Kings to send him to Manchester of the AHL. He will only see NHL time if there are a lot of injuries to the Los Angeles blueline.

The Los Angeles Kings have re-signed defenseman Joe Piskula.

Just an FYI. The 25-year-old has played only five games in the NHL and unless there are a lot of injuries on the Kings blueline next season, that shouldn't change.
