Your Nashville Predator of the Week: January 19-25

Hannah Foslien

Today marks the 7th day of this abbreviated 2013 NHL season, so it's high time to introduce a recurring feature for this campaign. In a week which had its share of ups and downs, who gets your vote as the Preds player of the week?

During this first week of the season, the Predators kicked off the home schedule with a pair of shootout losses, went on the road to vanquish Ryan Suter & the Minnesota Wild, and got their heads handed to them last night in St. Louis. Looking back across all four games, these players stood out as the best of the bunch... vote below for your pick!

Behold the Gold! Check out our selection of Nashville Predators t-shirts...


Martin Erat

#10 / Left Wing / Nashville Predators

6-0

201

Aug 29, 1981


The Marty Party is off to a fine start, with two goals and two assists to lead the team in scoring. Erat appears to be in mid-season form already, which is impressive considering the fact that he didn't go overseas to keep palying competitively during the lockout.


Patric Hornqvist

#27 / Right Wing / Nashville Predators

6-0

188

Jan 01, 1987


A steady presence in front of the enemy net, Hornqvist is tied with Shea Weber for the team lead with 12 shots on goal, and like Erat, also had four points this week (1 goal, 3 assists). A cross-check to the face from the Blues' Barret Jackman last night shows that opposing defenseman are already concerned about him.


Chris Mason

#30 / Goalie / Nashville Predators

6-0

195

Apr 20, 1976


Mase made his return to the Nashville lineup in grand style, turning in a workmanlike 29-save effort in the Preds' 3-1 victory at Minnesota on Tuesday.

Honorable Mentions

Colin Wilson has showed a great deal of promise in the offensive end, but has just one goal to show for it so far. Gabriel Bourque added zip to the lineup after he returned from Milwaukee for Game 3, but missed the first two games while recovering from injury.
