Aberg scored a pair of goals in a 5-4 OT loss to Lake Erie on Tuesday, including his team-leading 13th of the season.
In his first season with the Admirals, Aberg is showing no signs of trouble adapting to the North American game after spending the past three seasons in Sweden (86 points in 151 games). Accordingly, the 21-year-old Aberg -- drafted 37th overall by the Preds in the 2012 Entry Draft -- could be in line for a promotion to the big club if he maintains his torrid pace. Keep an eye on him.

Aberg was assigned to AHL Milwaukee after Saturday's preseason game, Eric Stromgren of The Tennessean reports.
Aberg scored two goals in his preseason swan song, giving coach Peter Laviolette something to think about before cutting him. A former second-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Aberg could find his way to Nashville later in the year if injuries ravage the team's depth on the wing.
