P.K. Subban held a press conference this morning in Nashville and said he’s seeing progress in his rehab from injury.
But Subban won’t be able to play tonight against his old team, the Montreal Canadiens, due to an upper-body injury that may, according to reports, be a herniated disc.
“The good thing is that I’m seeing progress every day, so just getting better,” Subban said. “Obviously frustrated. You want to get into a game. Obviously everyone knows how important this game is for both teams and I’d love to be out there. But I’m just going to have to rely on my teammates tonight to get the job done.”
The 27-year-old defenseman has been placed on injured reserve. Yesterday, Predators GM David Poile said his fingers are crossed that his star player won’t be out much longer.
“We thought that he would be back sooner, but sometimes this is what happens with injuries,” Poile told reporters.
