UPDATE: Despite numerous reports that Duchene was to be scratched for today's game, he is indeed in the lineup. Nothing to see here, folks.

The Nashville Predators are currently playing for their season in an elimination game against the Arizona Coyotes and their high priced offseason acquisition is nowhere to be seen... literally. 

Free agent acquisition Matt Duchene has reportedly been scratched for Game 4 and will watch his team play for their season from the press box.
