      Predators' Gabriel Bourque: Placed on IR

      Bourque (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Bourque was forced from Friday's road contest due against the Flyers due to the lower-body injury, and while details surrounding the ailment remain vague, evidently it was serious enough to put him on the shelf for the seven-day minimum. He'll be eligible to return Dec. 5 versus the Red Wings.

      Predators' Gabriel Bourque: Upper-body ailment causes departure Friday

      Bourque has sustained an upper-body injury in Friday's road game against the Flyers and will not return, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. The forwards in Nashville are spread thin between this latest development, Miikka Salomaki (undisclosed) on IR, and center Paul Guastad deemed unfit to play Friday due to an upper-body injury. Look for the team to provide an update on Bourque's status ahead of Saturday's home game against the Sabres.

      Predators' Gabriel Bourque: Rare helper in win over Sabres

      Bourque recorded his fourth point of the season, assisting on Cody Hodgson's game-winning goal in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres. It should come as no surprise that Bourque struggles to put points on the board every year, since that is not really his focus. He continues to skate mainly in a checking-line capacity, and is one of the team leaders in shorthanded ice time, averaging roughly two minutes per game. As a result, Bourque's fantasy value is limited to the deepest of leagues only.

      Analysis: Gabriel Bourque has largely been stuck in a bottom-six role this season, but his second assist did come alongside top liners Mike Fisher and Filip Forsberg. It's unclear if he will have many further opportunities to permanently unseat Craig Smith at one of the wing spots on the top line, as Bourque hasn't shown much scoring prowess this season. He's managed only 13 points in 63 games.

Bourque will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, and it would not surprise us if the Preds decided to part ways with the 24-year-old winger. Either way, he should not be on your fantasy roster at this time.
