Welcome Back Jed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even though Puck Daddy made a snide comment in his Death Watch today about it, he did alert us to some fantastic news - Jed has made it back to the NHL!!!!!!!

From the Preds homepage:
Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Jed Ortmeyer from the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

Ortmeyer, 30 (9/3/78), has 23 points (10g-13a) in 55 games since joining the Admirals on Dec. 3, 2008 – he missed the first 24 games of the season due to a knee injury sustained in Nashville’s game against Dallas on Feb. 23, 2008, his last NHL game played. In 2007-08 – his first season with the Predators – the Omaha, Neb., native played in 51 games, recording four goals and four assists.

Since 2003-04, the 6-1, 188-pound right wing has played in 228 career NHL contests, tallying 32 points (13g-19a).
After the aforementioned knee injury Jed had blood clot issues again and he battled to get back on the ice. He did it and he now has made it back to the show. I hope he sticks, he deserves it.

Go Jed!!!!!
