ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Nashville Predators wing Patric Hornqvist left Saturday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks with a lower-body injury and could not return.

Hornqvist got his legs tangled up with Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf halfway through the third period and left the ice bent over with the aid of teammates.

After the game, Predators coach Barry Trotz said Hornqvist suffered a lower-body injury and is out indefinitely.

The 26-year-old winger entered Saturday's action with four points (one goal, three assists) in four games. He had 27 goals and 16 assists in 76 games for the Predators last season.

Philadelphia is where I started my NHL career and this is where I want to be so I am really happy. This definitely gives me a lot of confidence by the Flyers showing that they have confidence in me. I know they want to see me get better as a player and this is the place to do it.
