It appears that Matt Irwin will not make the Predators out of training camp.
The veteran defenseman signed a two-way contract in July but was in battle for a roster spot with Matt Carle and Yanick Weber which he ultimately did not win. The Pred made 13 other cuts Sunday. The team assigned goaltender Jonas Gunnarsson, defensemen Alexandre Carrier, Jonathan-Ismael Diaby, Jack Dougherty, Matt Irwin and Trevor Murphy, and forwards Felix Girard, Max Gortz, Justin Kirkland, Michael Liambas, Adam Payerl, Jaynen Rissling, Trevor Smith and Harry Zolnierczyk to Milwaukee (AHL). The Preds also assigned Frederic Allard to his junior team (Chicoutimi, QMJHL) and released goaltender Mark Visentin, defensemen Teddy Doherty, Eric Knodel and Jimmy Oligny, and forwards Gabryel Boudreau, Eric Robinson, Tylor Spink, Tyson Spink and Matt White from their tryouts.
