Predators forward Calle Jarnkrok will miss the remainder of the regular season with an upper-body injury.
Jarnkrok was injured during Tuesday night's 3-1 win against Winnipeg. The 26-year-old has 16 goals and 35 points in 68 games this season.
Predators Head Coach Peter Laviolette says it won't be just one person in the lineup he'll look to when it comes to replacing Jarnkrok's production, but rather a collective effort from the forward corps.
"Certainly I think the addition of Ryan Hartman coming in here has been big," Laviolette said. "He's been down playing with [Nick] Bonino, they've played together, so that combination is there. Ryan can chip in, Colton Sissons is a guy that can chip in, [Miikka] Salomaki gets back in the lineup; he was playing really well when he came out, too, so it's a chance for him to continue with what he was doing. He was fast, he was physical and now he gets a crack back at it as well."
The Predators have 13 games remaining in the regular season and begin a three-game road trip tonight in Arizona against the Coyotes (at 9 p.m. CT).
