From the Tennessean:
Predators center Jason Arnott has suffered a small fracture in one of the fingers on his right hand and will miss at least the next three games.
Arnott will be re-evaluated at that point to see if he can play with the injury.
I still say Patric Hornqvist probably had something to do with it...
For those fans who have been frustrated with NHL teams and their lack of disclosure regarding injury information (usually getting no more specific than “upper body injury”), this year’s league policy is at least honest and forthright in declaring team rights to keep the public in the dark:
Clubs no longer are required to disclose the specific nature of player injuries. Clubs are, however, required to disclose that a player is expected to miss a game due to injury, or will not return to a game following an injury. Clubs are prohibited from providing untruthful information about the nature of a player injury or otherwise misrepresenting a player’s condition.
This being the case, Nashville Predators fans are left wondering exactly what happened to Jason Arnott last night. He didn’t play at all in the third period, and word from the team was that he would be day-to-day with a “jammed hand”, whatever that is.
So in the interest of completely idle speculation as to exactly what could be going on with the Predators captain, I’d like to present…
Top Five Diagnoses for Jason Arnott’s “Jammed Hand”
An outdoor cooking area at the home of Predators center Jason Arnott in Brentwood apparently caught fire and damaged the house this morning, an official said.
When a smoke detector went off, Arnott looked outside and saw the blaze around the grill area, Brentwood Fire Chief Kenny Lane said. The fire department got the call around 3:30 a.m.
Surprisingly, so far there’s been no word out of the Toronto media as to how this will accelerate the team’s relocation to Hamilton.
In order to tide us all over until training camp opens next month, I thought I’d take a cue from Lowetide and some others by taking an early peek ahead to the 2008-9 season for individual members of the Nashville Predators. Hey, it’s the middle of August, and there’s nothing else to write about, right?
