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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
