      Gaustad is day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Senators, Adam Vingan of the Tennessean reports.

His day-to-day label suggests the injury likely isn't serious, however, so the 33-year-old forward could return to action as soon as Thursday against the Maple Leafs. Colton Sissons is set to replace Gaustad in the Predators' lineup for Tuesday's game.

    • Preds' Gaustad Delivering Hits, Not Points

      News: Paul Gaustad was held off the scoresheet for the 13th time in the past 14 games Sunday against the Ducks. However, he delivered four hits for the fourth straight game, and added two blocked shots, and won 57% of his faceoffs (12-for-21).
      Analysis: As the Preds' fourth-line center, scoring is not one of Paul Gaustad's primary responsibilities. However, he does provide fantasy value in those leagues that reward more than goals and assists. He currently ranks second on the team in hits (124), sixth in blocked shots (51) and he's one of the top faceoff men in the league (.570 success rate). Give him a look if your league counts these secondary stat categories.
