Weber, Klein out for Predators against Flyers

Top defenseman Shea Weber is not expected to play Saturday night when the Nashville Predators welcome the Philadelphia Flyers to Bridgestone Arena.

Weber left Nashville's game Thursday with an eye injury and did not skate Saturday morning. Defenseman Kevin Klein is also out with a lower-body injury, and the Predators recalled Joe Piskula from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League. To make room for Piskula on the active roster, forward Filip Forsberg was placed on injured reserve.

Nashville coach Barry Trotz told Josh Cooper of the Tennessean that Weber is day-to-day with the injury.

"We're very fortunate it's not a lot more serious," Trotz said.

Piskula, 29, will be the oldest member of the Nashville defense corps against Philadelphia. The other five are all 25 years old or younger. Roman Josi has the most NHL experience, and Saturday will be his 117th career NHL contest.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
