The Nashville Predators lost forwards Gabriel Bourque, Paul Gaustad and Colin Wilson for the rest of the season, due to various surgeries.
All three are expected to be ready for training camp in September.
Predators general manager David Poile told the Tennessean that Gaustad and Wilson need shoulder surgeries that will keep them sidelined for four months.
Bourque reportedly is out with a knee injury.
Nashville entered Thursday 13th in the Western Conference, five points behind the Detroit Red Wings for a postseason berth.
