Predators defenseman Hal Gill will likely end his 12-game absence due to a lower body injury tonight when Nashville plays Columbus.
It’s unclear which defenseman will sit tonight — or if Nashville will go with seven defensemen. Ryan Ellis came off the ice quite late, which could mean he will be scratched. If so, it would be Ellis’ first scratch of the season.
Gill draws back into tonight's game, replacing rookie Frederic St. Denis. Gill has one point over 16 games, which should not effect your fantasy hockey roster. However, he should further protect Carey Price and clear the crease for the scrappy Canadiens.
