Sissons (upper body) is on the ice for pregame warmups Wednesday against Columbus, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Given the fact he's taking line rushes, it seems like Sissons will play after sitting out last game with an injury. With 10 points in his last 15 games across 14:40 of average ice time, the 27-year-old has been a pretty productive bottom-six asset.
Sissons (upper body) is considered day-to-day and will not play against Columbus on Monday. I's unclear when Sissons sustained an injury but he was a late scratch for Monday's contest. He has just 15 points in 52 games this season but 10 of those have come over the last 15 contests. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's rematch with the Blue Jackets.
