    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Assists in win over Jets

    Gaustad recorded an assist in Thursday's win over the Jets, his second point in the last four games. Now with just five points in 38 games this season, Gaustad is on track to post the lowest offensive totals of his career. This should not come as a surprise to anyone, of course, as the 33-year-old spends most of his time centering the Preds' fourth line, taking faceoffs, killing penalties and keeping the opposition's best players in check. In fact, defensive-zone faceoffs are Gaustad's specialty, where he leads the league with an astounding 90.7% win rate.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Nets shorty Saturday

    Gaustad scored a shorthanded goal in Saturday night's 2-1 overtime win over the Hurricanes. This was the first goal all season for Gaustad, but there's no reason to believe that he suddenly has an affinity for the twine. Instead, look for the center to deliver decent hit totals -- he has 62 hits this season -- and be used on the penalty kill, where he's averaging 2:19 of ice time through 30 games.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Not contributing offensively

    Gaustad finished the month of December with zero points in 13 games after returning from a four-game absence due to an upper-body injury. He now has just two points in 29 games so far this season. This should not come as much of a surprise, as Gaustad's primary role continues to be winning faceoffs and killing penalties, and he continues to be very busy in both of those categories. He is currently ranked 17th in the league in faceoff winning percentage (.558) and he leads all Nashille forwards in shorthanded ice time per game (2:19). Bottom line, while his days of contributing on the scoresheet are long over, Gaustad's fantasy value continues to lie strictly in the aforementioned secondary stat categories.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Activated from IR

    Gaustad (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will play in Saturday night's road game against the Red Wings, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Gaustad missed the past four contests due to the lower-body ailment, though he participated in practice Wednesday and is now fit play again. Here's hoping the 33-year-old can finally stay on the ice as upper and lower-body injuries have limited him to just three games since Nov. 7.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Likely out Thursday

    Gaustad (upper body) is likely slated to miss Thursday's contest against the Panthers. Gaustad did take part in practice Wednesday, but was sporting a non-contact jersey while doing so. Barring some updated information confirming otherwise, expect Gaustad to skip Thursday's contest. If that's indeed the case, the veteran's next chance to return would come Saturday against the Red Wings.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Placed on injured reserve Saturday

    Gaustad (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Gaustad suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game against the Sabres, and was unable to suit up for Friday's tilt against Philadelphia as a result. The exact nature of the ailment remains unclear, but it's apparently serious enough to warrant placement on injured reserve. If healthy, Gaustad will be eligible to return to action Thursday against the Panthers.

    Predators' Paul Gaustad: Out Friday

    Gaustad (upper body) was not on the ice for pregame warmups Friday, indicating he won't play against the Flyers, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Gaustad exited Wednesday's game earl because of the injury, and it appears it will cost him Friday's game at a minimum as well. Colton Sissons was on the ice and appears the likely candidate to draw into the lineup in his place, but the Predators also had seven defensemen on the ice for warmups, so it's also possible they will go that route. Gaustad's next chance to return will come Saturday against the Sabres.
