Fiala potted a goal on four shots over 15:37 on the ice in Tuesday's win over Colorado.

The young winger looked mighty strong out there after making a quiet return to the NHL (9:49 of ice time, two shots, no points) on Sunday in the aftermath of his most recent recall. With first-round pedigree (No. 11 overall in 2014) and solid AHL production (78 points in 106 career games, including eight in seven this year), Fiala has plenty of upside. It's not clear how long the Preds plan to keep him around, but a few more points on the board in the next few games would make him awfully hard to demote.
