Josi will head to Denmark to participate in the IIHF World Championship. Now that the Predators have been eliminated from the playoffs, Josi will join a Swiss team that currently sits in fourth place in the Group A standings, having accumulated a 2-1-1 record. It wasn't the finest playoff output for the playmaking defenseman, as four assists stood as his only points through the first two rounds.
Josi had two assists and three shots on goal in a 4-0 win over the Jets on Monday. Josi had been held without a point in his eight prior games, including every game in this series. However, he hasn't been entirely uninvolved offensively, as he has 36 shots in his last nine games. If he can secure another point or two in Game 7, it will go a long way toward helping the Predators move on to the conference finals.
Josi recorded his second assist of the playoffs in Monday's Game 3 against the Avalanche. While Josi did contribute to one of the Predators' four goals and added four shots on goal, a hit and two blocked shots, he also posted a minus-3 rating on the night. It marks the second straight game in which he's posted a below zero plus/minus rating. This time it cost Nashville, as the Preds dropped the game to see their lead in the series shrink to one.
Josi registered a power-play goal, an assist, three shots and five hits during Thursday's 4-3 road win against the Capitals. Josi now has four goals and six points in his last seven contests and has hit the 50-point mark for the third time in the last four seasons. One of the league's top blueliners, the 38th overall pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft should be off the boards early in 2018-19 fantasy drafts.
Josi registered a goal and three shots on net through 23:53 of ice time (3:00 with the man advantage) during Tuesday's 2-1 shootout win against Minnesota. This makes consecutive games with a goal for Josi, and he's now up to 12 tallies and 37 helpers for the campaign. The 27-year-old defenseman sports a rock-solid 1.74 points and 8.23 shots per 60 minutes, and with an average of 24:31 of ice time per contest, he projects to remain a high-end contributor in all fantasy settings.
