The Nashville Predators have placed defenseman Roman Josi on injured reserve with an upper-body injury, the club announced Friday.

Josi left Thursday's game against Boston after taking a hit delivered by Bruins forward Anton Blidh and was unable to return.

NHL rules dictate a player placed on IR must remain out of the lineup for seven days, meaning Josi will miss at least the next three games - Jan. 14 in Colorado, Jan. 17 in Vancouver, and Jan. 19 in Calgary.

Josi would be eligible to rejoin the team for the final two games of the road trip in Edmonton and Minnesota.

Blidh will not face supplemental discipline from the league, per Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.
