Filip Forsberg to miss 4-6 weeks with upper-body injury

The Nashville Predators will be without leading scorer Filip Forsberg for four to six weeks with what the team is calling an upper-body injury that he suffered against the Minnesota Wild on Friday.

Forsberg has missed the Predators' past two games -- the first games he's missed since 2014 -- after he was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

He has 15 goals and 19 assists in 37 games, the highest points-per-game average of his career, while anchoring the team's top line with Ryan Johansen and Viktor Arvidsson.

The high-scoring Swede played in all 82 regular-season games for Nashville the past three seasons and all 42 postseason games in that time frame.
