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

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
