Josi notched a power-play assist, six shots on goal and four blocked shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Red Wings. Josi set up Mikael Granlund for the Predators' first tally of the game. After a rough six-game stretch in which Josi had just two assists, he's picked up three helpers in the last two contests. Fantasy managers will hope that's a sign the Swiss blueliner is rounding back into form. Overall, Josi has 11 points (five on the power play), 66 shots, 34 blocks and a minus-6 rating in 19 outings.
Josi posted two power-play assists, five shots on goal and two PIM in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings. Josi's contributions to the offense included passing to Filip Forsberg twice. The first connection led to Forsberg's tally, while the latter was relayed to Eeli Tolvanen for the second goal. Josi has two goals, 10 points, 30 blocked shots, 60 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 18 contests this year. The Predators' offense has dropped from 3.07 goals per game in 2019-20 to just 2.28 in 2020-21, and Josi's point output has taken a corresponding hit. He'll still see plenty of ice time, so there's reason to believe the Swiss blueliner can still put up decent numbers by the end of the season.
Josi and the Predators' game against Dallas on Tuesday has been postponed due to severe weather conditions. Josi will have to wait for Thursday's clash with Columbus for his next opportunity to add to the two goals and eight points he's amassed through 15 games this campaign.
Josi scored the game-winning goal on a team-high six shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over Chicago. Josi drove the net from the point and outwaited Chicago goalie Malcolm Subban to pot the overtime winner just under two minutes into the extra session. It was the first goal and second point in six games for the 30-year-old Josi, who registered career highs of 16 and 65, respectively, in those categories a season ago.
Josi and the Predators will not play Carolina on Tuesday after the game was postponed. Per the NHL's statement, "The decision was made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the health and safety of players, coaches and game day personnel and in consultation with medical experts. As of Monday, the Predators' Mikael Grandlund was the only player on the team in the COVID-19 protocols. At this time, no official reschedule date has been announced. Depending on the situation, Josi and the Predators could be forced to postpone Friday's matchup with Dallas, as well.
