The Nashville Predators placed forward Paul Gaustad on injured reserve Monday. The faceoff ace suffered an upper body injury March 12 against the Dallas Stars and has yet to return.
Gaustad now joins forwards Patric Hornqvist and Colin Wilson who both have upper body injuries as well.
After Sergei Kostitsyn gave up on play Sunday night in Edmonton that led to a goal, it appears he will be scratched for the Predators' next game in Columbus, according to TSN insider Bob McKenzie. Chris Mueller, who was recalled last week from the Admirals, will be in battle for a lineup spot against Zack Boychuk. More will come later on.
