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

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.
