Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo voluntarily has entered into in-patient care through the NHL-NHLPA substance abuse and behavioural health program.
The league announced Tootoo's move Monday afternoon in a release. His care will be monitored by doctors from both the NHL and the NHLPA.
Tootoo will be paid his full salary. 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.
