Cal O'Reilly skated with the Nashville Predators for the first time on Thursday.
O'Reilly suffered a back injury lifting weights before the start of training camp. He had 16 goals and 63 assists for Milwaukee of the AHL last season, finishing fifth in scoring in the AHL. O'Reilly has become a prospect for the Predators and don't be surprised if he sees some action at the NHL level this season. He should also spend a lot of time in the minors, at least at the start of the season.
