As first reported by Patten Fuqua of PuckScene.com late this morning, the Nashville Predators have recalled forward Chris Mueller.

With the injury last night to Paul Gaustad, the Preds were in need of a center. Mueller has had several different cups of coffee with Nashville while spending the majority of his past four seasons with the Milwaukee Admirals.

All three of his points at the NHL level came on JP Dumont goals back in January of 2011.

The official press release is below.

    Good deal. Looking forward to seeing Mueller play again. Did he only have 3 assists? It seems he had a key OT winning goal at one point.
