  • Ekholm managed an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Avalanche in Game 4. Ekholm picked up assists in both of the Predators' home games, but they still were eliminated in a four-game sweep. The 31-year-old defenseman added eight shots on net, 11 hits and eight blocked shots in a top-four role. Ekholm inked a four-year, $25 contract extension with the Predators in October, so he'll remain a top-four fixture on their blue line for the foreseeable future.

Ekholm has been steady in April with a goal and seven helpers through 14 contests in a second-pairing role. The Swede has 31 points, 145 shots, 96 blocked shots, 79 hits and a plus-14 rating through 76 appearances.

  • Ekholm dished out three assists -- one shorthanded -- in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Senators. Fellow Predators defenseman Roman Josi saw his 13-game point streak come to an end in this one, but Ekholm put forth his best Josi impression as the offense kept pouring in from the Nashville blue line. His first two helpers came on goals by Michael McCarron, while Tanner Jeannot finished off Ekholm's third assist. This was Ekholm's first multi-point game since Jan. 1 against Chicago, when he also posted three assists.
