    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Will return Monday

    Nystrom (foot) will rejoin the lineup Monday against the Kings, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports. Nystrom hasn't seen any action since Jan. 26 because of the broken foot, but that extended absence will finally come to close Monday. The 33-year-old winger doesn't produce much offensively (seven points in 40 games), so he still remains off the fantasy radar in nearly all leagues.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Recalled from conditioning stint

    Nystrom (foot) was recalled Sunday from his conditioning assignment with AHL Milwaukee. Nystrom scored a goal in Saturday's contest with the Admirals, his first game action since breaking his foot Jan. 26 against the Canucks. It appears the Predators have deemed him healthy enough to rejoin the club, but with just seven points (all goals) through 40 contests this season, his return to the lineup shouldn't have much of a fantasy impact. Still, expect another update when that date finally surfaces.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Placed on injured reserve

    Nystrom (foot) has been placed on injured reserve, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Nystrom had already been diagnosed with a broken foot, so it's not a huge surprise that he's been placed on IR given the timetable that comes with the issue. He'll be eligible to return after seven days on injured reserve retroactive to the last game he played in, but will likely require multiple weeks of rest and rehab before the discussion of a return to the lineup begins.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Out Wednesday

    Nystrom (undisclosed) is out Wednesday against the Flames. There was no indication that Nystrom was in any danger of missing Wednesday's tilt until he was announced as a last-minute scratch just a few moments before puck drop. Nystrom reportedly sustained an injury when he was hit by a shot from teammate Shea Weber in Tuesday's matchup with Vancouver, although the exact nature of the ailment remains unclear. Expect an update on the 32-year-old winger's status ahead of the Preds' first contest following the upcoming All-Star break, which is scheduled for Feb. 2 against St. Louis.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Rare goal in win over Wild

    Nystrom scored his seventh goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 shutout win over the Wild. Nystrom has always been more of a scorer than a playmaker throughout his career, which would probably explain why he has zero assists to accompany the seven goals he's managed so far this season. Either way, for a guy who's been seeing a steady diet of third-line minutes this year, he doesn't make for a particularly good fantasy play outside of very deep formats.

    Predators' Eric Nystrom: Playing diminished role for Preds this season

    Nystrom is averaging just 11:36 in ice time per game this season, significantly less than the 13:12 and 14:52 he saw the previous two seasons. With just five goals and zero assists in 26 games, it's not hard to see why Nystrom's role has been diminished this season. He continues to toil in relative obscurity in a bottom-six role for the Preds, making him largely unreliable fantasy commodity in most formats. Go with a more viable alternative if you have one.

Nystrom has been sidelined since Oct. 31 with an upper-body ailment, but returned to practice with the team Monday, indicating he is making progress in his rehabilitation. He's still on injured reserve for the time being, so the Predators should announce the 32-year-old's activation once he is fit to play.
