As always i would like to send my best wishes out to Jordin in this time and it`s good to see that he went in on his own free will and is trying to change it.
Hope you get better soon.

As a result of this Predators have signed AHLer Chris Mueller to an NHL two-way contract and he is expected to play on Tuesday vs Dallas.
