#44 Kiefer Sherwood
The final spot on the 2022-23 end of season Hot List goes to Kiefer Sherwood. Playing in five games in the first month of play, Sherwood had one goal and one assist before being sent down to Milwaukee.
Sherwood got his second opportunity to play for the Predators on February 23rd after the Predators began to struggle with injuries. After getting called up this time, Sherwood would not get sent back to Milwaukee the remainder of the season.
Although he did not show up on the scorecard as much as other players did, if you watched his style of play, he was one of the most aggressive players on the forecheck night in and night out.
Sherwood did find the back of the net on seven occasions and added six assists to his stats as well.
Scoring two goals in the final game of the season, Sherwood went down as the player scoring the first and last goal of the season for the Nashville Predators. The future for Sherwood is bright and I expect to see him in a Predators sweater more in the future.
