Cody McLeod (lower body) skated Thursday morning.

That's a positive side for the veteran winger. He won't play Thursday against Colorado, and is still considered day-to-day.
Feb 23 - 7:03 PM

Cody McLeod has been placed on I/R with a lower body injury on Sunday, and is considered day-to-day.

Cody McLeod scored a goal against Buffalo on Tuesday night.

He also dropped the gloves with Marcus Foligno and compiled five hits in just 8:40 of ice time. McLeod has two goals and 19 PIMs in six games with Nashville this season. He is tied with Anaheim's Jared Boll for the most major penalties in the league with 11 apiece.

Cody McLeod had quite the debut for the Predators during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

Not only was it his Preds debut, it was his first game against the only other club he's ever known - and he scored! He also fought Jarome Iginla, leaving him just a helper shy of the Gordie Howe hat trick. McLeod now has two goals and 57 PIMs this season.
Jan 14 - 6:18 PM

Cody McLeod will make his Predators debut against the only team he knew prior, the Avalanche.

The veteran winger will skate to the right of Derek Grant and Calle Jarnkrok on Nashville's fourth line. Through 28 games he has 50 hits and 52 PIMs, making him a valuable piece to anyone needing a boost in the physical department.
Jan 14 - 12:58 PM

The Nashville Predators have acquired Cody McLeod from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Felix Girard.

McLeod has a goal and 52 penalty minutes in 28 contests this season. He's a veteran enforcer that will bolster the Predators' fourth line, but shouldn't be counted on to do more than that. He comes with a $1,333,333 annual cap hit through 2017-18, but the Avalanche will be covering 40% of his salary and cap cost.

Cody McLeod wishes he had a bigger role with the Avalanche.

"Hundred percent, hands down," McLeod said. "We’re professionals and it’s a privilege to play in the NHL. But I feel like I can still play and contribute more than what I’m getting right now. It’s more frustrating that we’re losing, and the way we’re losing hockey games. I wish I was more part of it." McLeod has been dressed for just 24 of 36 games so far and when he has played he's logged just 5:56 minutes per contest. He has a goal and 45 penalty minutes this season.

Cody McLeod got his first goal of the season early in the first period, but Colorado was defeated 6-2 by the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

McLeod spent only 5:25 on the ice, which was the least of all Colorado skaters, but he managed to open the scoring and erase the goose egg from his goal statistic. Last year, he scored eight goals in 82 games for the Avs, so he is going to have to pick up the pace to match that total.

Cody McLeod will be scratched against the Blackhawks on Friday.

A night after picking up seven PIMs and skating just eight shifts for a total of 3:58, the veteran will watch from the stands just as he's done much of the season. He has no points with 30 hits and 45 PIMs in 22 games this season, and has averaged just 6:01 of ice time per game.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 08:34:00 PM

Cody McLeod and Eric Gelinas will be scratched against Montreal on Saturday.

Cody McLeod will get back into the lineup on Tuesday versus Nashville.

Cody McLeod will tag in for the injured Blake Comeau in Sunday's game with St. Louis.

Through three games so far this season the veteran pugilist has just a fight and three hits to his credit. Unfortunately that's just not enough production even in a reverse league.

Cody McLeod and Eric Gelinas will be scratched against Minnesota on Saturday night.

It's beginning to appear that neither McLeod nor Gelinas have much of a role with the team, as they've combined for just seven games play thus far. Until that changes, we wouldn't expect much from either player.
