Sissons scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flames. Sissons put the Predators ahead 1-0 at 19:28 of the first period. He's posted two goals in the last three contests after a recent 11-game point drought that followed his return from a lower-body injury. The 26-year-old has 15 points, 51 shots, 76 hits and 20 PIM through 51 appearances, mostly in a bottom-six role.
Sissons failed to crack the scoresheet for the ninth straight game Sunday against the Blues. Coming off a career-high 30-point season last year, Sissons got off to a terrific start this season with 10 points in his first 13 games. However, with just three points in his last 33 contests, it's been all downhill since then. To top it all off, Sissons' 12-game absence in January due to a lower-body injury has truly made this season one to forget. He's currently centering the Preds' fourth line between Austin Watson and Calle Jarnkrok, an assignment that provides very few opportunities to contribute offensively.
Sissons (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Thursday's game against the Devils, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports. Sissons has been sidelined for over a month with a lower-body injury, so he'll definitely have some rust to shake off against New Jersey. The 26-year-old, who's notched 13 points in 37 games this campaign, is expected to center Nashville's fourth line Thursday.
Sissons (lower body) won't play Wednesday but could rejoin the lineup either Thursday versus the Devils or Saturday against the Golden Knights, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports. Sissons has been sidelined for more than a month because of his lower-body issue. His recent trek to Milwaukee during the All-Star break on a conditioning assignment and subsequent return were clues that Sissons was nearing a return. The winger's activation from injured reserve should mark his first game back in action.
The Predators recalled Sissons from AHL Milwaukee on Sunday. Sissons spent the recent All-Star break on a conditioning assignment recovering from the lower-body issue that has forced him to miss the past 10 games. The 26-year-old will be a nice depth addition for the Predators, as he's supplied 13 points through 37 games this campaign. This news is certainly a positive step in his return to the lineup; however, it's still unclear when he'll officially be ready to play.
