Nashville, Tenn. (April 6, 2023) – Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the team has recalled forward Zach Sanford from Milwaukee (AHL).
Sanford, 28 (11/9/94), has suited up in 11 games for Nashville this season – his first with the organization – recording two points (1g-1a), 14 blocked shots and 14 hits. His last NHL action came on March 2 at Florida; he scored his first goal with the Predators, the game-winner, on Oct. 27 vs. St. Louis.

Originally drafted by Washington in the second round (61st overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft, Sanford is a veteran of 300 NHL games, skating for the Capitals, Blues, Senators, Jets and Predators, since making his League debut in 2016-17. During St. Louis’ run to the 2019 Stanley Cup, he established career highs in goals (16), assists (14) and points (30) in the regular season and went on to add four points (1g-3a) – all coming in the Stanley Cup Final against Boston – in eight postseason appearances.
