Predators mascot lands on the IR

It’s that time of the year when hockey fans around the NHL are holding their breath, cautiously watching preseason hockey games and hoping none of their team’s brightest stars go down with an injury. Unfortunately, the preseason can claim mascots too.

Here are some more details from the team’s website:

Predators mascot Gnash suffered a broken fibula in his left leg and is being treated by a team of physicians and trainers from Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the Nashville Predators,” Predators Senior Vice President of Communications Gerry Helper said. “We expect him to make a full recovery in six-to-eight weeks and look forward to his return.

Get well soon, Gnash!
