Trio of Predators having season-ending surgeries with Nashville 13th in Western Conference

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Colin Wilson, Paul Gaustad and Gabriel Bourque will be having season-ending surgeries and focus on being ready for training camp this fall.

The Predators announced the surgeries Thursday.

Wilson has not played since he hurt his shoulder March 9 in a game against Minnesota when he was the team's leading scorer with seven goals and 19 points. He tried skating with Nashville on Tuesday, but the Predators currently rank 13th in the Western Conference having lost four straight games.

Gaustad is Nashville's key forward handling faceoffs. But he has missed 17 games this season with injuries and will have his shoulder surgically repaired. Bourque had missed the past five games and will have a knee surgery.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
