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.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
