Petrovic will be sidelined for at least one week with a foot injury, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Petrovic suffered the injury on Oct. 31 against the Capitals when blocking a shot from Alexander Ovechkin. He was held out of the third period of that contest with the ding, but wasn't forced to miss any further action, suiting up for each of the team's next 11 games. The ailment has apparently worsened of late, so the 23-year-old blueliner will be held out of action for at least one week in order to fully recover from the injury. Recently recalled Dylan Olsen is expected to draw into the Panthers' lineup Sunday against Detroit in Petrovic's absence.
Petrovic (foot) will return to the lineup Wednesday night against the Ducks, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

He'll reportedly be paired with Dmitry Kulikov on the third defensive unit Wednesday evening.
