Roman Josi News
Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi (upper body) is close to returning to action but will have to skip another game Tuesday versus Boston. He is trying to come back from an upper-body injury and has missed five games because of the ailment. However, Josi has joined the team for a brief two-game road trip that starts Tuesday night, so it looks like he could be an option in the next game Thursday versus Pittsburgh. The Predators captain has totaled a team-high 59 points in 67 games during another prolific campaign. His eventual return will mean a demotion from the first power-play unit for Tyson Barrie, who enters Tuesday's contest with a four-game point streak.
Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi (upper body) will remain on the sidelines for Tuesday's matchup against Buffalo. The Predators captain was forced to miss his first game of the season Sunday against the Rangers and still hasn't recovered from an upper-body injury. Tyson Barrie has taken over Josi's spot on the first power-play unit and will hope to make a big impact Tuesday against a team that has the second-worst penalty kill in the league. Josi's absence has left a big gap to fill on the blue line, but the Predators will at least get some help Tuesday in the form of Ryan McDonagh (upper body), who returns from a four-game absence.
Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi exited Saturday's game against Winnipeg with an undisclosed injury. He logged 10:06 of action but didn't feature at all after the first period. The Predators captain is still being evaluated and the team is expected to provide an update on him Sunday. Josi is Nashville's leading scorer and best player, so losing him would obviously be a huge blow. He has racked up 18 goals and 41 assists in 67 games with 269 shots and 146 blocks. Tyson Barrie will take over duties on the first power-play unit if Josi has to spend some time on the sidelines, while Jeremy Lauzon would also be set for a much larger role.
Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi collected two assists as the team stayed hot with a 2-1 victory over Florida Thursday. He combined with Luke Evangelista to help Matt Duchene get the scoring started in a power-play situation and set up John Leonard for the eventual game-winner. The Predators have been selling assets and there have been a number of big injury blows, but the team has remained in the playoff race and that's mostly down to Josi's form. He's seventh in scoring among defensemen with 56 points in 59 games, and Josi's production has been ridiculous during the team's current 5-2-0 run, as the Predators captain has racked up four goals and eight assists in the seven games.
