Predators' James Neal: Week-to-week with upper-body injury
Neal (upper-body) was classified as week-to-week Thursday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.
Neal has already been designated for IR, but this latest news provides a little more clarity for fantasy owners regarding a potential return date. With 10 goals, including four on the power play, the winger's absence will be a major blow for a team trying to stay in playoff contention. Viktor Arvidsson figures to be the leading candidate to slot into the top line with Neal sidelined.
