Sixteen skaters and two goaltenders will make the trip to Nashville for the first of what may become annual rookie games with the Nashville Predators. The teams will square off Monday night and Tuesday at noon.
It sounds like the Thrashers may have the younger of the two rosters. John Anderson said he thought that Nashville had several Milwaukee (AHL) guys on their roster. For the Thrashers, only Grant Lewis and Scott Lehman played the majority of the season's games in the AHL. Chad Painchaud, Scott Lehman and Dan Turple are all second-year pros. Note no Zach Bogosian, who is out with a hip flexor injury suffered at Traverse City. He has yet to skate in main camp.
