The Nashville Predators are last in the NHL when it comes to goals per game, so it was a big blow when forward Patric Hornqvist sustained a shoulder injury.

Now Predators fans will have to hold their breath and hope that 23-year-old forward Colin Wilson‘s upper body injury isn’t serious.

Wilson, who has a team-leading 19 points, sustained an upper-body injury when he was hit from behind into the boards by Minnesota Wild defenseman Justin Falk.

The team has announced that Wilson will not return for the remainder of Saturday’s game, according to the NHL.com.

Nashville entered Saturday’s game after scoring an uncharacteristic six goals against the Edmonton Oilers on Friday. Wilson and Hornqvist combined for three of Nashville’s goals in that contest.
