Predators D Hal Gill knocked out of 2nd period of Red Wings game with lower-body injury

DETROIT - Nashville Predators defenceman Hal Gill has been knocked out of a game against the Detroit Red Wings with a lower-body injury.

Gill was injured in the second period Saturday night, and the Predators said he wouldn't return to the game.

Gill has no points in 15 games this season. The Predators acquired him a little more than a year ago from Montreal, and he had five assists in 23 games last season.

Gill, who turns 38 on April 6, is the oldest player in franchise history.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
