Predators place defenceman P.K. Subban on injured reserve

The Nashville Predators have placed defenceman P.K. Subban on injured reserve with an upper-body injury and will evaluate him in two to three weeks.

The Predators announced the move Sunday.

Subban has not played since Dec. 15, missing seven games. This move means he will miss Tuesday night's game with the Montreal Canadiens, which traded him to the Predators last summer.

His next possible chance to play against his former teammates is in March, when the Habs host the Preds on March 2 for the teams' final matchup of the regular season.

The defenceman has seven goals and 10 assists in 29 games with Nashville this season.
