  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Ascends to big club

    McCarron was called up from AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, per CapFriendly.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Suiting up Saturday

    McCarron (knee) is in Saturday's lineup against the Coyotes, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    McCarron was injured after blocking a shot Thursday against the Blues but won't have to miss any time as a result. He'll fill a bottom-line role for the third straight game.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Hurt on blocked shot

    McCarron (knee) left Thursday's game versus the Blues in the third period, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

    McCarron needed help off the ice after the block. The 26-year-old was making just his second appearance of the season. He's likely questionable to play Saturday versus the Coyotes.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Recalled Tuesday

    McCarron was called up from AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

    McCarron was brought up to Music City with Mathieu Olivier, one of whom will be tasked with jumping into the lineup against Dallas on Wednesday with both Nick Cousins (undisclosed) and Filip Forsberg (upper body) on the shelf. For his part, the 26-year-old McCarron has notched just two assists in six games for the Admirals this year and figures to play the bulk of his games in the minors.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Re-ups with Nashville for two years

    McCarron signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Wednesday.

    McCarron appeared in six NHL contests last year, but he failed to record a point. The forward spent the bulk of the year on the taxi squad, and he could again find himself on the outside looking in more often than not as a depth option. His two-way contract could also lead to him spending time at AHL Milwaukee.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: On active roster

    McCarron was recalled from the taxi squad Monday.

    McCarron hasn't been in the lineup since April 10 and has appeared in just two games since the start of March. He could draw back in for Monday's contest against Carolina.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Shuffles to taxi squad

    McCarron (suspension) was reassigned to Nashville's taxi squad Wednesday.

    McCarron served the second game of his two-game suspension Tuesday against Tampa Bay, so he'll be eligible to return to the Predators' lineup Thursday against Carolina if needed. He's gone scoreless through five top-level appearances this year.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Rises to active roster

    McCarron (suspension) was promoted to the active roster Tuesday.

    McCarron will serve the second of his two-game suspension during Tuesday's game versus the Lightning. The 26-year-old forward has made just five NHL appearances this season, so he's not a lock to suit up again once his suspension is lifted.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Moves to taxi squad

    McCarron (suspension) was assigned to the taxi squad Monday.

    McCarron is suspended through Tuesday's home game versus the Lightning, so this is purely a paper move. There's no guarantee that the 26-year-old winger will return to the lineup after his suspension is lifted, as he has made just five NHL appearances this year, posting no points and 11 hits.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Will have hearing with league

    McCarron will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday for his illegal check to the head on Tampa Bay's Yanni Gourde on Saturday.

    McCarron was handed a match penalty for his actions, and it sounds like he could be suspended further. In turn, it's unlikely that he's eligible to play in Sunday's home game versus the Stars. The 26-year-old has played five games this year without a point.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Handed two-game ban

    McCarron was suspended two games Sunday for his illegal check to the head on Tampa Bay's Yanni Gourde during Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Lightning.

    McCarron committed this infraction during his first NHL appearance in over a month, so his absence won't affect the Predators too much. Nevertheless, the 26-year-old won't play in Sunday's game against the Stars or Tuesday's matchup versus the Lightning. Thomas Novak likely will slot into the lineup in McCarron's place.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Joins active roster

    McCarron was promoted from the taxi squad Saturday.

    McCarron has appeared in just four NHL games this season and has been a healthy scratch since March 11. The Predators are dealing with a handful of injuries to the forward group right now so the 26-year-old could draw into a bottom-six role for Saturday's matchup with the Lightning.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Reverts to taxi squad

    McCarron was assigned to the taxi squad Saturday.

    McCarron was elevated Saturday morning, and it appears that was just in case Ryan Johansen (undisclosed) was unavailable. Johansen gained clearance, so McCarron will go back to the taxi squad. The 26-year-old has played four games without a point this year.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Bumps to active roster

    McCarron was promoted to the active roster Saturday.

    McCarron has played just four NHL games and no AHL games this season. He'll add depth up the middle with Ryan Johansen (undisclosed) uncertain for Saturday's matchup against the Blackhawks.

  • Predators' Michael McCarron: Returned to taxi squad

    McCarron was reassigned to Nashville's taxi squad Wednesday.

    McCarron was called up from the taxi squad Tuesday ahead of the game against Detroit.
