Nashville Predators Defenseman to Miss Time

The Nashville Predators have been dealt some rough injury news, as Alexandre Carrier will be out for the next four to six weeks due to an upper-body injury.

With the Predators aiming to catch up to their Western Conference rivals, it certainly is not ideal that they are now going to be without Carrier for at least a month. He is a mainstay in their defensive group, so the Predators are going to need to adjust without him from here.

After recording a 30-point campaign in 77 games last season, Carrier has cooled off a bit this year, as he has eight points in 40 games. Still, even with this being the case, the Predators are going to miss him while he is sidelined. Here's to hoping he has a speedy recovery from here.
