Tolvanen is considered week-to-week with his lower-body injury. This is a big loss for the Predators and fantasy managers alike, as Tolvanen has been red hot recently, having racked up four goals and 10 points in his last nine games. Due to the expected length of his absence, it wouldn't be surprising to see Tolvanen surface on injured reserve in the coming days.
Tolvanen (lower body) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Red Wings. The 21-year-old has been fantastic lately, producing 10 points and 20 hits over the last nine games. It's unclear how serious this injury is. His next opportunity to play is Saturday against the Lightning.
Tolvanen scored the game-winning goal on the power play in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Chicago. The 21-year-old saw his six-game point streak snapped Thursday, but Tolvanen wasted no time getting going again, lighting the lamp less than six minutes into the first period Saturday. The 30th overall pick in the 2017 draft has burst onto the scene with nine goals and 18 points in his last 22 contests, locking down a top-six spot in Nashville in the process and helping the club turn its season around after a rough start to 2020-21.
Tolvanen scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars. Tolvanen helped out on Roman Josi's power-play goal in the second period. In overtime, Tolvanen scored at the 1:28 mark to give the Predators a sixth straight win. Their winning streak has also seen the Finnish winger produce three goals and six assists during his personal point streak. The 21-year-old is up to 18 points (10 on the power play), 44 shots on net and 52 hits through 28 contests, which could earn him some buzz for the Calder Trophy.
Tolvanen notched an assist and four hits in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Blackhawks. Tolvanen dropped a pass to Roman Josi for the Predators' game-winning goal at 13:27 of the third period. The assist gave Tolvanen a five-game point streak, during which he's racked up two goals and five helpers. The Finn is up to 16 points, 43 shots on net and 51 hits through 27 games. The 21-year-old is producing enough on offense, including a top-unit power-play role, to earn attention in standard fantasy formats.
