The Nashville Predators have recalled five players from AHL Milwaukee as injuries and food poisoning have ravaged their roster.
Goaltender Juuse Saros, and forwards Trevor Smith, Frederick Gaudreau, Austin Watson, and Harry Zolnierczyk were all brought in to Nashville on an emergency basis ahead of Saturday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The team also placed forward Cody Bass on injured reserve with an upper-body injury.
Predators general manager David Poile suggested that the chicken soup served before the game was the cause.
“Everything was fine yesterday, and it all happened just before and then during the game and after the game and it’s continuing today,” he said.
