Pacioretty (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's clash with Nashville, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports.

If Pacioretty gets onto the ice, it will be his first game action since Oct. 14 versus the Kings, a 17-game stretch on injured reserve. The winger would likely supplant Evgenii Dadonov for a spot on the top line alongside Mark Stone, though he could also link up with the second trio in favor of Mattias Janmark. Regardless of where Pacioretty fits into the top six, he figures to be a top-end fantasy target as he tries to get over the 20-goal threshold for the third straight year.
