Already gone with a "lower-body" ailment is defenseman Ryan Suter and Matthew Lombardi seems to still be feeling the effect of his "concussion", both don't have a timetable right now for a return.

Now add Martin Erat to the list of walking wounded as he will not travel with the Preds as they take on Phoenix, Los Angeles and Anaheim starting Wednesday night. Erat is suffering from an "upper body" injury and missed the team skate Tuesday.

The Preds are in St. Louis (Nov 11) to end a five game road swing that started last Saturday in Detroit.

Francis Bouillon is likely to make the trip along with Marcel Goc, who has been out with a separated shoulder. Goc appears ready after taking some contact during Mondays practice.
