Preds place Forsberg on IR, Weber and Klein out vs. Flyers

Nashville, TN ( - The Nashville Predators placed forward Filip Forsberg on injured reserve.

Forsberg has been sidelined with an upper-body injury. In 12 games, he has totaled just one goal and four assists with a minus-8 rating.

The Preds recalled defenseman Joe Piskula from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League for Saturday's contest with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Nashville will be without the services of blueliners Shea Weber and Kevin Klein.

Weber was hurt in a 3-0 loss to the Oilers on Thanksgiving, when he was struck in the face with a shot.
