Jackman received a fighting major and a game misconduct during Saturday's 7-0 rout of the Jets. He saw just 7:55 of ice time but was a plus-2 and had 15 PIM. It's an odd-looking stat line for Jackman, who plays a physical game but usually shows enough discipline to say out of penalty trouble. For example, he had just 47 PIM all of last season, but he's already up to 26 after Saturday's scrappy affair with the Jets. Consider it a nice little bonus for the handful of you out there who own him - it won't happen often.
Jackman (upper body) will return to the Predators' lineup for Thursday's tilt against the Ducks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Jackman was forced to miss Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning with the upper-body injury, but is now apparently healthy enough to re-join Nashville's lineup Thursday against Anaheim. The 34-year-old veteran defender has yet to register a point this season, but enters Thursday's contest with a plus-3 rating.
Jackman missed Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with an upper-body injury, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports. The 34-year-old Jackman is normally about as durable as they come - Tuesday marked just the ninth NHL game he's missed since the 2011-12 season - so this could actually be something serious. Mark him down as day-to-day for now, but the situation is worth monitoring. Check back for Jackman's official status prior to the Preds' net game - Thursday against the Ducks.
Barret Jackman (elbow) returned to the ice Tuesday, recording a goal in 13:14 of ice time in a loss to the Blue Jackets.
