Arvidsson Back on the IR

November has not been kind to Nashville Predators forward Viktor Arvidsson and we're only halfway through the month.  At the start of the month, he landed on the Injured Reserve with a minor lower-body injury, missing three games in total, but today, just a couple of days from returning from that injury, the Predators placed the forward on the IR again, this time with an upper-body injury.

There were no real details about the nature of the injury or the seriousness of it, so we're only saying that he'll be on the shelf for at least a week, likely eligible to come off the IR on Saturday, assuming he was retroactively placed on the list for Saturday.

The 25-year old has been good, when healthy, posting 8 goals and 13 points in 13 games so far this year and was a big part of Neil's early success in the hockey pool.  Neil's team is still holding on to a top 10 spot, thanks to the 4th-ranked group of forwards in the pool, to date.  Of course, at that scoring rate, you know Neil will certainly missing any time that Arvidsson misses and that could prove costly over this next stretch.
