The Nashville Predators have added forward Yakov Trenin back to the roster prior to their contest against the New Jersey Devils (tonight at 7 p.m. CT).

The Preds (12-10-5) have points in five of their last six games, including a 3-2 loss in overtime to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday. Mikael Granlund (lower-body injury; day-to-day) was unable to play in Tuesday's game. He has not joined the team at practice since Monday. The Predators recalled Trenin from the Milwaukee Admirals (AHL) on Friday morning, after reassigning winger Mathieu Olivier earlier in the week. 

The Devils (9-14-5) played last night against Chicago and fell in a shootout. New Jersey replaced head coach John Hynes with interim head coach Alain Nasreddine on Tuesday. Tonight's contest also marks P.K. Subban's first return to Nashville since being traded to the Devils in June. 

The Preds held an optional morning skate on Saturday. Below is a Predators projected lineup based on Friday's practice:

Filip Forsberg - Ryan Johansen - Calle Jarnkrok

Daniel Carr - Kyle Turris - Matt Duchene
