Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Doles out three apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson had three assists and four shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Florida.

Arvidsson helped Nashville come almost all the way back from a 3-0 second-period deficit, drawing two helpers in the middle frame and another in the third period. The 27-year-old is stuck in a brutal 15-game goal drought dating back to the start of February, but he's managed to pick up four assists and 12 shots over his last three contests. Arvidsson has seen his production plummet from a career-high 34 goals in 2018-19 to 15 last season to just two in 23 games this year. His shooting percentage has also dropped from 17.4 during to 11.8 to 2.5 during that time.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Sets up goal in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson registered an assist Sunday in a 3-1 win over the Blue Jackets.

Arvidsson busted out of a 10-game pointless skid with the helper, plus the Swede had a game-high five shots on goal. His assignment as a third-line winger is far from ideal, but Arvidsson does have a nice track record of offensive success.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Putting up bagels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson extended his current pointless streak to five games in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.

Arvidsson got off to a decent start this season with seven points in his first 10 games, but he's been stone cold since the beginning of February. Keep him on your bench until he finds a way to rediscover his scoring touch.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Logs regular shift on opening night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (undisclosed) had four shots on goal in Thursday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

The 27-year-old was unable to finish practice Wednesday due to an undisclosed ailment but was in the opening-night lineup on Nashville's top line with Ryan Johansen and Filip Forsberg. Although he was held off the scoresheet, Arvidsson's 17:44 of ice time seemingly indicate that his issue is behind him. The right winger is coming off of a 15-goal, 13-assist campaign in 2019-20.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (undisclosed) is expected to play Thursday against Columbus.

Arvidsson exited Wednesday's practice early with an undisclosed issue, but he was on the ice for Thursday's morning skate, which was the first indication he'd likely be available against the Blue Jackets. The dimunitive sniper is expected to skate on the Predators' top line and first power-play unit.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Missing from practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (undisclosed) was not in attendance for Wednesday's practice session, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Arvidsson was originally on the ice Tuesday but appears to still be dealing with his undisclosed injury. Unless something changes in the winger's status soon, he could miss out on Opening Night versus Columbus on Thursday. If Arvidsson is sidelined, Eeli Tolvanen could be called up from the taxi squad and even be given the first-line role.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Back at practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (undisclosed) was in his usual first-line spot at Tuesday's practice session, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Arvidsson ended the 2019-20 season on an absolute tear, as he racked up five goals and three helpers in his final 12 contests including the postseason. The 27-year-old Swede garnered 15 goals and 13 helpers in 57 games last year and should be capable of producing at similar levels this year.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Missing from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (undisclosed) didn't emerge from the locker room for the third period of Friday's Game 4 versus Arizona, Paul Skrbina of The Tennessean reports.

Arvidsson appeared to be in discomfort after taking a puck to the ribs at the end of the second period and stayed in the locker room for the beginning of the third. He has yet to be officially ruled out of the remainder of the contest, but at this point it looks like the Predators may have to force a Game 5 in order for the dimunitive sniper to get another chance to play this season.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Lights lamp again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored his second goal of the playoffs during Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Coyotes in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers.

After lighting the lamp on the power play in Game 2, Arvidsson hammered a shot past Darcy Kuemper on Wednesday for Nashville's only offense. He's put 13 shots on net through the three games, and the 27-year-old will need to keep firing away Friday if the Preds are going to avoid elimination.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Mini-point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson notched an assist for the second straight game in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Stars.

On the positive side, this marked the first time Arvidsson recorded points in consecutive games for the first time since the end of December. At the same time, however, the 26-year-old Swede has been skating primarily on the team's fourth line of late, which has resulted in his ice time dropping to an average TOI of just 13:07 over the past five games, a sharp decline from the 17-18 minutes he was seeing earlier in the season. Now with just 27 points in 56 games, Arvidsson has been a real disappointment for fantasy owners this season. Hopefully he can extend his current point streak down the stretch as the Preds try to hang onto one of the two wildcard playoff spots in the Western Conference.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Scores winner with man advantage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored the game-winning goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Ottawa.

Arvidsson broke a 2-2 deadlock with a power-play goal midway through the second period, his 14th tally of the year. It was just the second point in 12 February games for the 26-year-old. Arvidsson averaged 57 points over the previous three seasons but has just 24 in 50 games in 2019-20.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Mired in slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson extended his current scoring drought to six games Thursday against the Islanders.

Arvidsson continues to skate primarily on the Preds' top line with Ryan Johansen and Mikael Granlund; however, his ice time has taken a bit of a dip recently -- in the past six games, his average TOI is just 14:30, a full two minutes lower than his season average of 16:41. Scoring-wise, the Swedish winger now has just seven points in 22 games since returning from a lower-body injury in mid-December. If you haen't already, you might want to stash him on your fantasy bench in favor of a more consistent option.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Scores late in home defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 5-2 loss to Toronto.

Arvidsson's goal with seven minutes remaining brought the Predators to within 4-2, but that was as close his Nashville would get. It was Arvidsson's 12th goal in 36 games this season, a far cry from the 34 he tallied in just 58 games a year ago. The 26-year-old can still help fantasy owners if he can run into a hot streak, so keep an eye on him if he's sitting on your waiver wire.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Lights lamp in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored a goal on four shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to Anaheim.

Arvidsson got the Predators on the board in the latter stages of the first period, picking up his 11th goal of the season. He has 11 goals and 20 points in 34 game this season and has yet to rediscover the touch that resulted in 94 goals over his previous three years.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Scores first goal of 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over Chicago.

Arvidsson had gone his first four games of the New Year without a point before opening the scoring three minutes into Thursday's game. It was his 10th goal in 31 games this season, a disappointing total for a player who had averaged 31 goals over the previous three seasons. If a frustrated owner cut him loose in your league, be ready to pounce if he starts to heat up.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Snaps out of goal slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Coyotes.

Arvidsson entered the night stuck in a nine-game goal drought but managed to find the net for the first time since Nov. 2. The goal was his seventh of the season and gave him 16 points through 24 games. Arvidsson returned from a 12-game injury absence on Saturday.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (lower body) has been activated off injured reserve ahead of Saturday's game versus Boston, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Arvidsson has missed Nashville's last 12 games due to a lower-body injury, but he's been practicing with the team since Monday, so he should be close to 100 percent Saturday. The 26-year-old Swede will return to a prominent role, skating on the Predators' top line and first power-play unit against the Bruins.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (lower body) took part in Monday's game-day skate but won't suit up versus the Rangers, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

The team didn't provide a specific timeline for when Arvidsson might get back into a game, but the fact that he is joining his teammates on the ice is certainly a step in the right direction. The winger missed the previous nine games due to to his lower-body issue. Once cleared to play, the Swede should slot back into a top-line role alongside Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Lands on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Monday.

Arvidsson's designation shouldn't come as a surprise considering he will miss 4-6 weeks due to his lower-body injury. Prior to getting hurt, the winger was on pace to top the 50-point mark for the third time in his NHL career, but he could now struggle to reach 40 given the amount of time he is expected to miss. Craig Smith looks to get the first crack at the top line, though Calle Jarnkrok and Mikael Granlund could also get opportunities.

Predators' Viktor Arvidsson: Out 4-6 weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Arvidsson is out 4-6 weeks after suffering a lower-body injury during Saturday's win over the Blues.

Arvidsson was cross-checked twice by Robert Bortuzzo during the contest, and he didn't come back into the game. The early end of the timeline would allow the 26-year-old sniper to return to action Dec. 21 against Boston, but the lengthier side pegs his return for early January. This is a major blow to Nashville's forward corps, as Arvidsson has scored at least 29 goals in each of the previous three seasons. Bortuzzo will have a hearing regarding the incident with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday.
