Salomaki is projected to be a healthy scratch for Tuesday night's Game 3 against the Ducks, NHL.com reports. It's entirely possible that Salomaki was never injured at all and the Predators have simply decided to exclude him from the lineup after he posted no points while averaging 8:04 of ice time in four playoff contests. Pontus Aberg is slated to draw in for a third consecutive contest in Salomaki's place.
Salomaki (undisclosed) has been scratched from Sunday's Game 2 against the Ducks. This is the second straight scratch for Salomaki, and it remains unclear as to why he is out. His next opportunity to return will be Tuesday for Game 2 in Nashville.
Salomaki will not play in Friday's Game 1 of the Western Conference finals against the Ducks for an undisclosed reason, Predators' Communications and Content Coordinator Brooks Bratten reports. It is unclear at this time why Salomaki -- an energy cog at the winger spot -- was a late scratch for the Predators. At any rate, his next opportunity to play will be Sunday for Game 2.
Salomaki (lower body) has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to play Tuesday night's game against the Islanders. Salomaki has missed all but the first two games of the season as a result of this injury, so it's somewhat inspiring to see him take the ice for the final week of the campaign. That said, he'll return to fourth-line duties alongside Cody McLeod and Colton Sissons, so he doesn't present much in the way of fantasy value in the majority of formats.
Salomaki (lower body) was recalled from the AHL ahead of Saturday's game against the Sharks, The Finnish forward was sent to the AHL's Admirals on a "long-term injury loan," but that transpired just a week ago. He's not in the lineup with the game in San Jose currently in progress, so it's safe to assume that he still has some work to do before in his rehab.
