Ryan Suter "likely" to miss time from Shane Doan hit

In a report on tonight's Sports Zone on Nashville's Fox 17, Willy Daunic shared word that Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter, who was injured by a hit from Shane Doan in last night's 3-2 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes (video below), will "miss some time, they've got their fingers cross that it's not more than a week". There was no official update from the team, but that's the impression which Willy shared this evening.


With Francis Bouillon still on the shelf for an indeterminate amount of time with a concussion, one wonders who the Predators might call up from the Milwaukee Admirals to help fill out the blueline. While Roman Josi and Jonathon Blum are promising young players, at this time of year, with each game playing a large role in the Western Conference playoff chase, my money would be on veteran Aaron Johnson to get the call. But of course, stay tuned...

Earlier this season, Suter missed 11 games with a lower body injury due to a hit from Calgary's Cory Sarich. Despite missing that much time, he's tied for the team lead in assists with Shea Weber at 25.
