Eaves In Surgery Today

Forward Patrick Eaves will undergo surgery today to repair the fractured jaw he suffered Saturday night. GM Ken Holland said he expects Eaves to miss 6-8 weeks and that no roster moves are planned for the near future.

Eaves had only 1 assist in 10 games this season after practicing with the top line for the majority of the preseason. The incident occurred with just over 2 minutes to play in the game. Predators defenseman Roman Josi, playing in his first NHL game, attempted to shoot a rolling puck on net. His blade met the puck on its side, causing the shot to lift up and catch the kneeling Eaves in the right ear.

A very unfortunate incident given the time that it occurred. It should also be noted that Eaves had played his best game of the season Saturday, leading the team in both shots and hits.
