The Nashville Predators have finally addressed placing Filip Forsberg on injured reserve.

Forsberg to Miss 4-6 Weeks with Upper-Body Injury

Per the release:

Just as the Nashville Predators welcomed Ryan Ellis back to the lineup, they learned they'll have to deal with the absence of another star for at least the next month.

The Preds announced Wednesday forward Filip Forsberg will miss the next four to six weeks due to an upper-body injury sustained on Dec. 29 at Minnesota.

Nashville's leading scorer with 15 goals and 34 points in 37 games this season, Forsberg has missed his team's last two games, the first time the Predators have played a game without him - regular season or playoffs - since the 2013-14 season.

It’s little more than a timetable and does not address the nature of his injury. We have some insight into the nature of the injury, but we are still not sure entirely what it might be.

Get well soon, Fil! Nashville needs you.
