News: The Rangers have acquired Thuresson in a trade that has moved forward Brodie Dupont to the Predators, the Rangers' official site reports.
Analysis: This transaction pales in comparison to the Blueshirts' bringing a fantasy star in Brad Richards to the Big Apple via free agency, but Thuresson gives the Rangers some more options at right wing. The Predators frequently shuttled Thuresson between AHL Milwaukee (50 games) and the parent club (22) in 2009-10, though he only saw three games in the majors this past season.
News: Thuresson has been reassigned to AHL Milwaukee, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: Thuresson appeared in three games in his first recall of the season, going pointless while logging 10:08 per game. In his place, the Preds have recalled Matt Halischuk from the Admirals, who played in Sunday's game against Chicago.
News: The Predators recalled Thuresson from the AHL on Saturday, the team's official site reports.

He is still a developing forward and is not yet a recommended Fantasy option.
