Simmonds (lower body) wasn't able to overcome his injury prior to the Predators getting bounced from the playoffs.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds missed the final four games of the series after getting hurt early in Game 2. The winger managed just three points in 17 contests with Nashville after making the move to the Music City at the trade deadline. The 30-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and will likely have a handful of suitors looking to add a gritty, bottom-six veteran.

Simmonds (lower body) will not play in Monday's Game 6 road tilt against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds hasn't played since Game 2 and his absence is surely being felt with Nashville down 3-2 in the series. His status is unclear for Wednesday's potential Game 7 matchup.

Simmonds (lower body) wasn't on the ice for warmups ahead of Saturday's Game 5 against the Stars, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Simmons has effectively been ruled out for the latest playoff contest, the fact that his status came down to warmups suggests that he may not be all that far away from a return. It's not all doom and gloom for the Predators in the way of injuries, though, as Rocco Grimaldi (undisclosed) is set to return.

Simmonds (lower body) will not play in Monday's game against Dallas, and is considered "week-to-week".

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds left Saturday's Game 2 in the first period and didn't return after he took a shot to the leg. The fact that he's considered week-to-week casts serious doubt on his availability for Game's 4 and 5 respectively. With Simmonds out of the lineup, Miikka Salomaki (upper body) could take his place.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds went back to the locker room after testing out his leg during Saturday's Game 2 versus the Stars, John Glennon of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds was absent from the bench for a long time after taking a shot to the leg, but he reappeared during the second period before heading back down the tunnel again. It's tough to tell how serious the injury is, but it's encouraging that he was able put pressure on his leg and skate. Expect an update on his condition after the contest.

Simmonds (leg) returned to Saturday's Game 2 versus the Stars, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds left in the first period after taking a teammate Roman Josi's shot off his leg, but he returned to action midway through the second frame. This is a huge sigh of relief for Nashville fans, as Simmonds will bolster its bottom-six depth.

Simmonds exited Game 2 versus the Stars on Saturday with a leg injury, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Simmonds took Roman Josi's shot off of his lower leg, and he immediately went to the locker room without putting pressure on his leg. The 30-year-old didn't return for the start of the second period, so it's unlikely he returns to this contest. Look for an update on his condition after the game, as the Predators travel to Dallas for Game 3 on Monday.

Simmonds scored his 17th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

EDGE Analysis

He couldn't have asked for an easier scoring chance, as Ryan Ellis found him at the side of a wide-open net with a perfect pass from the opposite half wall. It's Simmonds first goal, and only his second point, in nine games since the trade that brought him to Nashville, but with the weight of that slump off his shoulders, the rugged winger might be able to build some scoring momentum heading into the postseason.

Simmonds has only one assist in five appearances since being traded to the Predators.

EDGE Analysis

The winger was one of two big-name deadline day acquisitions for Nashville, but he's had difficulty finding his way in Nashville. Over those five games, he has six shots on goal and eight hits while skating to a plus-3 rating. His goal drought has carried over from his Flyers tenure, stretching to 15 games after the cage proved evasive for the winger in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes.
