In a blog post this evening at The Tennessean, John Glennon brings word from the Nashville Predators that defenseman Dan Hamhuis has "suffered an upper-body injury Thursday and will be sidelined against the Capitals" tomorrow night. This was the reason cited for today's recall of Cody Franson from Milwaukee.
According to the Time On Ice report from last night's game, Hamhuis played into the final minute of the third period, so whatever occurred didn't stop him from finishing the game.
Against the #3 scoring team in the NHL, this is certainly not a time for Nashville to lose one of its key blueliners.
