Cody Hodgson, Viktor Arvidsson, and Petter Granberg will each be scratched from Friday's match with Colorado.

Cody Hodgson may draw back into the Predators' lineup for Saturday night's game against the Hurricanes.

He has been a healthy scratch for three consecutive games but skated in scrimmages Saturday morning with Colin Wilson and Calle Jarnkrok an indication he may be playing against the Canes. Even if he does suit up, Hodgson is no longer a fantasy asset.

Cody Hodgson, Anthony Bitetto, and Petter Granberg will each be scratched from Tuesday's match with the Blues.

Of the three, only Hodgson has produced a modicum of fantasy value. Through 35 games his posted eight points, and not much else. Which also tells you about all you need to know about Bitetto and Granberg as fantasy assets.

Updating a previous report, Cody Hodgson will sit for Mike Fisher on Monday night.

Cody Hodgson scored in Tuesday's 2-1 OT loss to the Calgary Flames.

Hodgson converted on a penalty shot at the 5:09 mark of the first period to give the Preds a 1-0 lead. The 25-year-old has fallen off considerably since his 20-goal and 44-point season in 2013-14. Hodgson has two goals and seven points in 30 games this season.

Cody Hodgson scored only his second goal of the season Wednesday night but it was an important one for the Nashville Predators, who were able to end their losing streak by defeating the Sabres 3-2 in Buffalo.

Hodgson's goal, at 6:29 of the second period, gave the Preds a 3-0 lead and turned out to be the game winner. Nashville had lost its previous three games, a franchise worst. Hodgson, a former Sabre, had been having a tough time this season. He scored his first and only goal of the season on Nov. 5. Mike Fisher opened the scoring at 13:52 of the first period, his third of the season. Fisher's goal was the Predators' first goal since Nov. 17 and ended their franchise-record goalless streak at 227:39. That included three straight shutouts. Craig Smith also scored for Nashville, his fifth of the season.

Cody Hodgson played on the fourth line during Friday's 4-0 loss to Columbus.

It's not as bad as it sounds though as Hodgson still logged 14:50 minutes of ice time. He also fired 11 shot attempts, with five of them counting as shots on goal. Hodgson hasn't been having a good season though as he's scored just one goal and four points in 18 contests. The 25-year-old still has potential, but we can't recommend betting on him at this time.

Cody Hodgson finally notched his first goal of the season in Thursday night's win over Minnesota.

It was an important one, as Hodgson's marker with just over five minutes remaining in the third proved to be the game winner. The 25-year-old has just two points in 12 games so far.

Cody Hodgson doesn't have a point in his first nine games with the Nashville Predators.

"Obviously, I'd like to contribute more offensively like I know I can, but I think that'll come," he said. "We've had some good opportunities and missed a couple point blank, but overall, I think our line's creating energy and contributing to victories." Hodgson is still getting used to Nashville's system and he isn't letting his slow start get him down. Still, he won't have any fantasy value until the points start coming.

Cody Hodgson doesn't want to look back on his struggles from last season.

The 25-year-old scored just six goals and 13 points in 78 games with Buffalo last season before being bought out. He inked a deal with Nashville over the summer and is just looking to move on from his disappointing campaign. "Obviously it was tough," Hodgson said. "I hate dwelling on the past. I'm not going to (worry about) what could have been or what went wrong. I just really focus on the present moment. I'm happy to be here. Things seem to be going well on the ice here. ... I'm going try to fit in as best I can with these guys and contribute to winning."
