The Predators have acquired Mikael Granlund from the Wild for Kevin Fiala.

The Predators were likely looking to add a centre like Matt Duchene or Kevin Hayes but pivoted to Granlund when those two were traded to Columbus and Winnipeg respectively. Granlund is a player who plays on the wing as well and is know primarily as a playmaker, but is on-pace for his third straight 20-plus goal season. Granlund seems like a player who will either bump Kyle Turris down the lineup and centre the second line or play on Turris’ wing.

Granlund (groin) will be a game-time decision on Friday.

Granlund has been bothered by a groin injury since the season opener but he was back on the ice for Thursday’s practice and skated on the top-line and top power-play unit, making him a game-time decision for tomorrow. Monitor his status during the pre-game skate, but it looks like he will return and it’s a huge addition for the Wild who are quite banged up right now.

Granlund (groin) had a “good skate” on Monday.

Granlund has missed the last three games with a groin injury that he was dealing with in training camp. Granlund returned to the ice on the weekend and had a “good skate” this morning, which suggests he might not be far from returning to the lineup. The Wild are off until Friday, so monitor his status as the week progresses.

Granlund (undisclosed) will miss at least the next four games.

Granlund missed Saturday’s game in Carolina as well as Monday and Tuesday’s practices and after the session head coach Bruce Boudreau said that Granlund will miss at least the next four games, keeping him sidelined until at least October 24th vs. Vancouver. With Granlund out, Marcus Foligno is expected to start with Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker.

Granlund (undisclosed) "probably" isn't going to play Saturday in Carolina.

Granlund was apparently playing through an injury in the season opener in Detroit, where he was held off of the scoresheet. The Finnish playmaker will likely be held out of the lineup Saturday in Carolina, so look for Gustav Olofsson to draw into the lineup as a seventh defenseman.

Granlund (wrist) is expected to skate with teammates on Saturday and practice on Sunday.

Granlund has been out since undergoing wrist surgery on December 29th. His original timetable was four weeks and he is already two and a half weeks into that. Coach Mike Yeo said he is getting much closer and practicing on Sunday could have him on pace to return before the four-week mark.
