Free Agent

Volchenkov is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Volchenkov did not play on Saturday night, he was replaced by Victor Bartley. Volchenkov likely suffered the injury on Thursday vs. the Blues, where he played just 11:18. He is questionable for Tuesday’s clash with Colorado. Bartley will remain in the lineup until Volchenkov is 100 percent.

The Predators have locked Anton Volchenkov up for one-year at $1 million dollars.

Volchenkov, 32, recorded eight assists in 56 games with the Devils last season. Despite sub-par offensive numbers, Volchenkov led the Devils in hits (129) and was second in blocked shots (91) even though he missed 26 games. He had strong possession numbers in 2013-14 and should settle in nicely on the Predators second pairing.

Devils' Anton Volchenkov faces hearing for elbowing.

He could become the latest to be suspended after his Thursday morning phone hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shananan for throwing an elbow the night before. He appeared to lead with his elbow when hitting Brad Marchand in the head during the second period. The Boston Bruins winger grabbed his head and slowly dropped to the ice. Marchand had to be helped to the dressing room and the Bruins announced during the third period that he was not returning for the night. There was no update on his condition after the game. Volchenkov received a five-minute major and game misconduct.
