NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo voluntarily has entered into in-patient care through the NHL-NHLPA substance abuse and behavioral health program.

The league announced Tootoo’s move Monday afternoon in a release. Tootoo’s care will be monitored by doctors from both the NHL and the NHLPA.

Tootoo will be paid his full salary, and the NHL says in a statement he will face no penalty as long as he complies with his treatment and the followup care program.

He has 10 points through 32 games and a team-high 47 penalty minutes.

“We offer Jordin the full support of his teammates, coaches and the organization,” Predators general manager David Poile said in a statement. “There is no timetable for his return, and we will have no further comment at this time.”
