Nashville Predators forward Michael McCarron has entered the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance program on Sunday and will be out indefinitely.

The league and player association did not specify why McCarron entered the program.

The NHLPA added in their statement that “McCarron will continue to be paid while receiving treatment. He will return to the Club when cleared for on-ice competition by the program administrators.”

A first-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, McCarron spent the past three seasons with the Predators after Nashville acquired him from the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 7, 2020.

In 15 games this season, the 27-year-old recorded two points (one goal, one assist) for the Preds.
