The Nashville Predators have assigned Pontus Aberg to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Aberg scored two goals in Saturday’s 4-1 win over the Florida Panthers. Despite being sent down, Predators head coach Peter Laviolette was impressed with the 21-year-old’s play in camp. "He can make plays, he can find holes, he can shoot the puck and he’s young," said Laviolette. "But it was a good camp for him and a noticeable camp for him." The young Swede is in his first season in North America, and will have to adjust to the smaller ice rinks before he gets to contribute at the NHL level.
