The Predators assigned Carr to AHL Milwaukee on Saturday. Carr has only averaged 6:25 of ice time in his last two appearances with the Predators, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 28-year-old winger will continue to bounce between leagues throughout the campaign.
Carr tallied a goal and added two hits in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Devils. Carr's tally at 0:46 of the first period ignited a frenetic start to the game. It was his first point in nine appearances this season. Carr has added 13 shots on goal and 10 hits this year. He had 16 points in 38 games during the 2017-18 campaign with the Canadiens, but he's yet to establish himself as a true NHL regular at 28 years old.
Carr was sent down to AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports. Carr actually started Thursday's loss to Arizona in a top-six role, but he didn't make the most of his opportunity. The 27-year-old winger slid down the lineup as that game went on and is now being sent down to the AHL, suggesting that Filip Forsberg (lower body) is likely ready to return to the lineup.
Carr cleared waivers Wednesday and will stay with the Predators, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports. The Predators were hoping Carr would pass waivers and land with AHL Milwaukee. However, Filip Forsberg has an undisclosed injury, so Carr's services will be needed with the big club at least until Forsberg is cleared to play. Carr has zero points and a minus-1 rating in two NHL games this year.
The Predators waived Carr on Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. Carr has been a healthy scratch for three of Nashville's first five games and only averaged 9:53 of ice time in the two contests he appeared in, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. As long as he goes unclaimed, the 27-year-old forward will be assigned to AHL Milwaukee.
