Nichol To Miss Remainder of Series with Broken Thumb

Predators center Scott Nichol has a broken left thumb, is scheduled to undergo surgery this afternoon in Nashville and will miss at least the remainder of the Predators-Red Wings playoff series.

Hes expected to be sidelined 2-3 weeks.

Took a shot off his hand on the second penalty kill in the first period and left the game. Big loss to the PK and also with Legwand's situation up in the air. Nichol is an energy player who is having a career year and has also developed into a real leader on this team over the past two years. Even bigger opportunity for Rich Peverley to step up his role and the need is as great as ever for Radek Bonk to get going.
