The Predators have signed Roman Josi to an eight-year contract worth $72.472 million ($9.059M AAV).
Josi was in the final year of his seven-year deal that carried a $4.0M AAV cap-hit. Josi will go from being one of the biggest bargains to the third-highest paid defenseman when his new contract kicks in. Josi is currently tied for second among defensemen in points with 13 (5G / 8A) in 11 games.
Josi (upper-body) is not expected to play on Thursday.
Josi is expected to miss his fourth consecutive game tonight vs. the Ducks. The Predators have been rotating people out of the lineup to give them rest, so they’re definitely not going to rush Josi back in. He was on the ice for the morning skate, but skated as an extra.
Josi (upper-body) is not expected to play vs. Dallas on Tuesday.
When Josi originally missed Friday’s game in Vancouver, the Predators called it rest but now he will miss his third straight game with an upper-body injury. The injury likely isn’t overly serious and the Predators are just being cautious with their captain given their position in the standings.

Josi (lower-body) is on the ice for warmups; expected to return to the Predators lineup.
Josi (lower-body) was on the ice for the morning skate; could return to the Predators lineup on Tuesday.
Josi missed the last three games with a lower-body injury, but was on the ice for the Predators’ morning skate and could return to the lineup tonight vs. Colorado. The Predators were able to go 2-0-1 without Josi, so getting him back will make them that much better. He is still looking for his first point after being held pointless with seven shots and a minus-3 rating in his first two games.
Josi will not be in the Predators lineup on Saturday.
Josi (undisclosed) will not play on Thursday; listed as day-to-day.
Josi stepped out onto the ice for the Predators morning skate, but took part on the fourth pairing and will be held out of the lineup for the second straight day. With Josi out, Samuel Girard will remain in the lineup. Josi said that he doesn’t expect his injury to keep him out for long.
Josi (undisclosed) is not on the ice for warmups; will not play vs. Philadelphia.
Josi (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday.
Josi missed Monday’s practice for “maintenance” but was also not on the ice for today’s morning skate which puts his status for tonight’s game in question. Samuel Girard is expected to make his NHL debut tonight regardless of Josi’s status. Monitor Josi’s status during pre-game warmups.
Josi (lower-body) will not play on Saturday.

Josi (upper-body) will not play on Tuesday.
Josi will miss his eighth consecutive game with an upper-body injury, but he is nearing a return, so monitor his status prior to Thursday’s game against the Oilers.
The Predators have placed Roman Josi (upper-body) on IR.
Josi was hurt on a hit from Bruins’ forward Anton Blidh last night and did not return. His immediate movement to IR is not good news and means that he will miss at least seven days with an upper-body injury. He joins PK Subban on IR as the Predators will be without both halves of their top pair.

Josi left Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
Josi left after he was hit high but Bruins’ forward Anton Blidh and didn’t come back to the game. Head coach Peter Laviolette thought the hit was “late and dirty.” Monitor his status prior to Saturday’s game in Colorado.
Josi (rest) will not play on Saturday.
The Predators are comfortably in the playoffs so they will rest a number of players in their season finale. Josi will come out of the lineup vs. Dallas.

Josi (lower-body) will not play on Saturday.
Josi will be held out of the season finale despite playing all 81 games leading up to today. I’m sure playing all 82 games doesn’t mean much when you can take a much needed day-off before the playoffs. Josi had a splendid season, scoring 15 goals (tied for 6th among defenemen) and 55 points (t-5th).
Josi (concussion) will return to the Predators lineup tonight.
Josi missed 10 games after suffering a concussion on a hit by Steve Downie on October 4. He will return to the lineup on the second pair with Kevin Klein. The duo should see 20-plus minutes a night, and if Josi can stay healthy he should push for 25 points in the remaining 70 games.
Roman Josi (concussion) is considered probable for tomorrow night's game at Phoenix.
Predators head coach Barry Trotz plans to give him "top four" minutes, but did not commit to pairing. Josi, who has missed the last 10 games, has mostly been skating with Kevin Klein in practice. He will likely play 20-plus minutes on a regular basis, and could push for 30 points if he stays healthy for the remaining 70 games.
