Poile update: Eye, nose surgery, stitches from puck in face


The Nashville Predators have updated GM David Poile’s condition after he was struck in the face by a puck at team practice in St. Paul, MN yesterday.

The Preds say Poile underwent two surgical procedures to his eye and nose and received stitches for facial lacerations due to the errant puck.

Poile is also the GM of Team USA and having to make a stop at the hospital to get work done is putting a cramp in his schedule to get to Sochi.

The Preds say he won’t be traveling with the team to Russia on Sunday but will join them later on when he’s in better shape.
