#1 – Roman Josi

Captain Roman Josi has played great for the Predators this season. He has missed a few games this season, but has still put up impressive numbers for the Predators. That is something you love to see coming from your captain. Despite playing in 11 of the 14 Predators games, Josi is 3rd in points so far for the Nashville Predators. He has eight points on the year, with four goals and four assists. Josi had a good trip on the west coast as he came away with three points over the course of three games, as he had two goals and an assist.

Additionally, he had a sick goal for the Predators in their loss against the San Jose Sharks. And, also picked up an assist and a goal in the Predators win on Friday night against the Anaheim Ducks. He assisted on Scott Hartnell‘s goal early in the 1st period, and also scored a goal himself later that period.

Next: The morning after the Turris trade

The Nashville Predator would like to see continued success from their captain. He earned that captain position this offseason, as he has been a successful defenseman over his seven-year tenure in Nashville. Nashville would like to see Josi keep this play up, especially while Ellis is out.
