Predators' Mathieu Olivier: Will miss 4-6 weeks

Olivier will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a lower-body injury. Olivier has been a solid bottom-six option for Nashville this season, but he's only picked up five points in 29 games, so his absence will likely go unnoticed in most fantasy formats. The Predators will probably need to make the playoffs in order for Olivier to have a shot at returning in 2020-21.

Core Values and Adding Layers: How the AHL prepared Eeli Tolvanen and Mathieu Olivier for NHL impact

If you’ve only been a fan of the Nashville Predators since their Stanley Cup run back in 2017, the first draft pick you heard about was probably Eeli Tolvanen. Tolvanen came highly touted as an offensive threat. His legend only grew as he played for Finland in the World Junior Championship and dazzled in the KHL for Jokerit Helsinki for the 2017-2018 season. His KHL season saw him score 19 goals and 17 assists in the regular season and an additional 6 goals and 1 assist in the playoffs. And when the season ended, Tolvanen came to Nashville as a black ace, played in three games and…didn’t get involved in scoring at all.
