Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg missed Wednesday’s game against the Edmonton Oilers with an upper-body injury and is being considered out week-to-week, the team said.

Forsberg played just 12:24 in Tuesday’s 3-2 overtime win against the Calgary Flames, leaving in the third period with an undisclosed injury.

It’s not clear on what play exactly Forsberg was injured. Predators head coach John Hynes had no update on what happened to Forsberg at that time.

In nine games this season, the 27-year-old has scored four goals and added three assists.
