  • Predators' Austin Watson: Might see time in minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/19) Watson is set to rejoin the Preds at practice Wednesday and could be headed for a conditioning assignment with AHL Milwaukee, Thomas Willis of the Predators' official site reports.

    Watson was recently reinstated by the league, but considering he hasn't played since Jan. 23, a stint in the minors could help him get back up to game speed. Once he gets his legs back under him, the winger could contribute in a bottom-six role heading into the playoffs.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Suspension over

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/19) Watson was reinstated by the NHL on Monday, Kristopher Martel of Fox Sports Tennessee reports.

    Watson had been undergoing treatment for substance abuse, stemming from domestic assault charges levied on the Predators' forward last July. It remains to be seen if and when he'll suit up again for Nashville, but Watson has been returned to "available status" according to the league's announcement. He last played Jan. 23.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Facing suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/29/19) Watson will be suspended without pay as he enters the second stage of the Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports, adding that the winger will be eligible to return once authorized for "on-ice competition" by the SABH administrators.

    This suspension has been issued under the terms of a joint program regulated by the NHL and NHLPA. Watson faced a 27-game ban after pleading no contest to misdemeanor domestic assault charges in July of 2018, but the league ultimately reduced the length of that suspension to 18 games before he returned Nov. 15. According to Vingan, this latest development is "related exclusively to (Watson's) ongoing issues with alcohol abuse."

    Predators' Austin Watson: Garners helper

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/19) Watson picked up an assist against the Golden Knights on Wednesday.

    Watson has points in three consecutive games and appears to have shaken off his month-long slump, in which he was held off the scoresheet in 16 straight outings. With the points once again piling up, the winger could challenge for an increased role in the top six, though the impending return of Kyle Turris (lower body) could hurt Watson's chances of getting more ice time.

    Predators' Austin Watson: Dishes assist, punches

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/19) Watson recorded an assist and five PIM during Tuesday's 7-2 rout over the Capitals.

    Watson has dropped the gloves in consecutive contests, while the helper brings him to six goals and nine points in 30 games, which significantly limits his fantasy value.
