P.K. Subban of Predators placed on injured reserve

Defenseman will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks, won't play against Canadiens on Tuesday @NHLdotcom

Defenseman P.K. Subban was placed on injured reserve by the Nashville Predators on Sunday with an upper-body injury and his status will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks.

Subban, acquired from the Montreal Canadiens on June 29 in a trade for longtime Nashville captain Shea Weber, hasn't played since Dec. 15. He will miss his eighth consecutive game when the Canadiens come to Bridgestone Arena on Tuesday (8 p.m. ET; FS-TN, RDS, SNE, NHL.TV).

Subban and the Predators are scheduled to meet with doctors Sunday to discuss how to treat what is believed to be a herniated disc, according to Sportsnet.

He has seven goals and 17 points in 29 games with Nashville.
