    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Shows rare burst of offense

    MacKenzie scored the game-winning goal, added an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Buffalo. At the time, MacKenzie's fourth of the year gave the Panthers a 2-1 lead, and they held onto that lead. Points don't come too often for the gritty center, who'd missed the scoresheet in seven straight and 10 of 11 since his only other multi-point game of this season, a two-goal effort back on Dec. 1. But if your league counts hits, MacKenzie may find a home on your roster.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Returns to action Tuesday

    MacKenzie returned to the lineup Tuesday after missing the previous four games with a knee injury. Mackenzie didn't find the score sheet in his return, but he did tally three shots in 13:13 TOI. He'll have some time to rest up over the holiday break, and should be healthy when the Coyotes return to action Sunday against the Blue Jackets.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Back in action Tuesday night

    As expected, MacKenzie (knee) will return to the lineup Tuesday night against the Senators, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. MacKenzie missed the last four games with the knee injury, but Panthers coach Gerard Gallant is electing to put him back in the lineup even though he could have been rested through the upcoming holiday break, suggesting that he's at or near 100 percent healthy.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Expected back Tuesday

    MacKenzie (knee) is expected to rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Senators, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. MacKenzie will miss his fourth straight game Sunday because of the injury, but it appears that may end this stretch of absences. Regardless, he should receive an update confirming his status at some point before the contest.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Will miss Panthers' next three games

    MacKenzie has returned to Florida to rehab his knee injury, and will miss the Panthers' next three contests as a result, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. MacKenzie will miss the final three games of the Panthers' current four-game road trip at the very least, meaning the earliest he'll return to action is Sunday against Vancouver. Recently recalled Corban Knight will likely slot into Florida's lineup for the duration of MacKenzie's absence.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Considered day-to-day

    MacKenzie (lower body) is considered just day-to-day, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. MacKenzie had to be helped off the ice when he suffered the injury Saturday, and did not return to the game, so day-to-day is probably a best-case scenario for the club. His next chance to return to the lineup will come Tuesday against the Islanders, and he hasn't been officially ruled out for the contest at this point.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: No update on injury after game

    There was no update on MacKenzie's status (undisclosed) after Saturday's game. Coach Gerard Gallant had nothing to report in the post-game news conference. MacKenzie had been helped off the ice by a teammate early in the second period of Saturday's game with what was thought to be a lower-body injury. He didn't return to the game.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Exits Saturday's game with injury

    MacKenzie has been ruled out of the remainder of Saturday's game against the Bruins with a lower-body injury, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. MacKenzie sustained the injury when he slid awkwardly into the boards after colliding with Boston's Dennis Seidenberg in the second period of Saturday's tilt. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it appeared as though MacKenzie was unable to put any weight on his left leg when heading to the locker room. The Panthers should provide an update on the 34-year-old forward's status following Saturday's contest.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Scores two rare goals

    MacKenzie scored a pair of unassisted goals on three shots in Tuesday's win over St. Louis. The tallies represented MacKenzie's first points since Nov. 4, and he can give thanks to the Blues for a pair of egregious turnovers that gave him prime scoring chances as well as a brutally awful showing by goalie Jake Allen on the second tally. MacKenzie's bottom-six role doesn't generally yield much in the way of stats, particularly outside of formats that count hits.

    Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Scores goal in OT loss

    MacKenzie scored a goal and posted a plus-2 in Tuesday's OT loss to the Penguins. In less than 12 minutes of ice time, MacKenzie and his line were by far the most productive of all the Panthers' groupings. MacKenzie has never been a big point producer, scoring a career-high 23 points in 2010-11, but the 34-year-old seems to be having a late-career renaissance.
