Watson collected a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Senators. The former first round draft pick is a promising prospect, and will get his first extended look in the NHL this season. Through 11 games, Watson has recorded two goals and three assists to go along with a plus-4 rating.
Watson (upper body) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Ducks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

Watson (upper body) is expected to play Thursday against the Ducks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Watson was held out of Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning with an upper-body injury, but appears poised to return to the Preds' lineup for Thursday's tilt against Anaheim. The 24-year-old forward has tallied one goal in three games with Nashville this season, and will likely return to a bottom-six role if he is indeed able to suit up Thursday against the Ducks.
Watson missed Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay with an upper-body injury, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports. Watson saw his first game action of the season on the Preds' recent road trip, and actually scored his first goal of the season against the Islanders on Thursday. That said, Watson typically skates on the Preds' fourth line and averages just 10-12 minutes per night, giving him marginal fantasy value even when healthy.
Austin Watson's varied skill set makes him an early candidate for one of the Predators' bottom-six players this season, Adam Vingan of The Tennesseean reports.
