Remember when Jason Arnott took a hard fall in the 3rd period Saturday in Washington, and limped off the ice? Perhaps that's when he injured his left arm.
This from Bryan Mullen at The Tennessean:
Nashville Predators captain Jason Arnott has been placed on injured reserve and is expected to miss one to two weeks, Coach Barry Trotz said Monday morning.
The injury occurred in the third period at Washington D.C. on Saturday. Arnott did not practice Monday and was wearing a sling on his left arm. When asked if the injury involved his shoulder or elbow, Arnott said, "a little bit of both."
For a team still struggling to generate offense, this is a huge blow given their upcoming schedule. Arnott is 2nd among forwards on the Preds with 19:24 of ice time per game, including 3:45 on the power play. He leads the team in shots with 31, well ahead of the next player, Patric Hornqvist with 21, and was off to a good start on the faceoff dot with a 54% winning percentage.
