Marek Mazanec has been summoned by the Nashville Predators.

Mazanec was demoted on Nov. 24 after he struggled in three contests with Nashville. He then posted a 2.73 GAA and .886 save percentage in five AHL games. He'll serve as Pekka Rinne's understudy while goalie Juuse Saros returns to the AHL so that he can play more regularly.

Juuse Saros has been sent to the minors.

Saros has a 1.70 GAA and .940 save percentage in three games with Nashville. As impressive as that is, the 21-year-old will get far more work in the AHL.

Mike Fisher had an assist in Nashville's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

That gives Fisher five goals and 14 points in 20 contests this season. He's not a major offensive contributor, but he should at least do significantly better than 2015-16 when he finished with just 23 points in 70 games.
Dec 5 - 11:22 AM

Juuse Saros allowed three goals on 27 shots in Sunday's loss to the Flyers.

Saros was terrific in his first two starts of the season, but couldn't lift the Preds, who have now lost three of their past four. Saros is now 1-2 with a 1.70 goals against average and .940 save percentage.
Dec 4 - 11:55 PM

Colin Wilson scored his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

The 27-year-old, who now has points in consecutive games, has five tallies and six assists for 11 points in 23 games.
Dec 4 - 11:47 PM

Pontus Aberg and Adam Pardy will be scratched against the Flyers on Sunday.

Pardy still waits to make his season debut. Through the first nine games of his NHL career, Aberg has just two points. Neither provide much fantasy value, unfortunately.
Dec 4 - 5:40 PM

Reid Boucher is set to make his Predators debut on Sunday against the Flyers.

Frederick Gaudreau and Austin Watson are slated to flank Boucher. He has two points in nine games this season. This will also mark the 100th game of his young career.
Dec 4 - 5:33 PM

It's confirmed, Juuse Saros will indeed face Philadelphia on Sunday.

Through three NHL games, including two this season, Saros has turned away 75 of 80 total shots. With Steve Mason in the other net, Saros may prove to be a sneaky play tonight.
Dec 4 - 4:42 PM

After making his NHL debut on Saturday, the Predators have returned Mike Liambas to AHL Milwaukee.

Five shifts for a total of 4:42 with a hit and a giveaway in one of the weekends wilder affairs. No matter, it'll still make the 27-year-old's personal highlight reel.
Dec 4 - 1:35 PM

Kevin Fiala has impressed Predators' coach Peter Laviolette with his recent play.

Fiala has scored three of his five goals over the Preds' last two games while playing on a line alongside Mike Ribeiro and Craig Smith. "I thought tonight was his best game in a Predators' uniform," Laviolette said on Fiala. "I thought he worked extremely hard. He brought the puck to the net and was confident in what he was doing; it was a real positive for him and his line. I thought they did a lot of good things offensively out there, but Kevin sure did have a good game with a lot of great things offensively." Keep an eye on Fiala as he may finally be reaching his potential.
Dec 4 - 1:30 PM

There is a good chance that Juuse Saros will get the start Sunday evening against the Flyers.

Pekka Rinne was in goal for the Pres' 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils Saturday night so it stands to reason he will be rested against Philly and give way to Saros. Saros is coming off a 3-0 to the Jets in which he stopped 21 of 22 shots. He's a good looking young goalie but will get limited opportunities behind the veteran Rinne.
Dec 4 - 1:26 PM

PK Subban picked up his sixth goal of the season during Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils.

The former Norris Trophy winner is up to 16 points this season, and appears well on his way to another run for nomination of the year's best defender.
Dec 3 - 8:17 PM

Roman Josi now owns points in four of his last five games thanks to a goal in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to New Jersey.

Josi has posted a goal and six points during that span. For the season, he has three goals and 15 points in 23 games.
Dec 3 - 8:15 PM

Kevin Fiala popped in a pair goals against the Devils in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss.

Fiala has now scored three of his five goals this season over the last two games on an impressive 11 combined shots. If he keeps shooting 5.5 times per night, he'll shoot up the charts. But let's see it happen first.
