Arvidsson headed to Denmark to play for Team Sweden in the IIHF World Hockey Championship. Arvidsson enjoyed a highly productive campaign in 2017-18, racking up 29 goals and 61 points in 78 regular-season games before tacking on five goals and nine points in 13 postseason contests. The 25-year-old winger will look to stay hot and help Team Sweden take home gold at the World Championship.
Arvidsson scored two goals and added an assist in Monday's 4-0 Game 6 win over the Jets. This is Arvidsson's second three-point game of the series, and his second multi-point game of the playoffs. Though he had 29 goals this year, and five more in the postseason, this is his first game with more than one goal in 29 contests. However, his second goal was of the empty net variety.
Arvidsson scored a goal on seven shots and had two helpers in a 5-4 double-overtime win against the Jets on Sunday. The length of this game helped boost Arvidsson's shot totals, but he doesn't have issue putting pucks on net. He had 247 shots during the regular season and has added 28 in eight playoff games. This was a nice outing for the Swedish winger, but he may find things a bit harder on the road in Winnipeg.
Arvidsson was scratched for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Blue Jackets. Arvidsson missed last Sunday's game against the Lightning with a lower-body injury but has played in two games since then, so it's likely he was just being given the night off to rest up for the playoffs. The 25-year-old Swede finishes the regular season with 61 points -- identical to last year's total -- and enters the postseason as one of Nashville's top offensive weapons. Keep him in mind for your playoff pools, but be mindful he may not be 100 percent healthy.
Arvidsson (lower body) will play Tuesday against the Panthers, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports. It initially looked like Arvidsson would sit, but he took warmups and is all systems go. Go ahead and plug him back into fantasy lineups at this time.
