    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Placed on injured reserve

    Gudbranson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve on Tuesday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Gudbranson had already missed the previous two contests while dealing with an upper-body injury and had been ruled out for the club's next game, so the move doesn't come as much of a surprise. There's still no clear timetable, but Brent Regner figures to continue drawing into the lineup in his place while he's sidelined.

    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Doesn't make road trip

    Gudbranson (upper body) did not travel with the team as they embarked on a two-game road trip starting Monday in Detroit, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Gudbranson can effectively be ruled out for Monday and Tuesday as a result of the news, with his soonest return date now coming Friday when the team returns home to face the Blues. The Panthers should provide further updates as he closes in on a return, but expect Brent Regner to continue drawing into the lineup until that happens.

    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Cleared to return

    Gudbranson (lower body) will suit up on against the Blackhawks on Friday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Gudbranson will not have missed any time due to the three-day break since Florida's last game. Not a prolific scorer, the defenseman has only five point this season. While he may be an important piece to the Panthers' blueline, the 24-year-old has limited fantasy value due to his lack of power-play ice time and inability to consistently get on the scoresheet.

    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Gudbranson reportedly suffered a lower-body injury in Monday's game against the Oilers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Gudbranson's injury isn't believed to be particularly serious, as the 24-year-old blueliner is expected to be available for Friday's matchup with Chicago. Either way, the Panthers' should provide an update on the former first-round pick's status ahead of Florida's matchup with the Hawks.

    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Tallies assist in loss

    Gudbranson tallied an assist, posted a plus-1, blocked a shot and picked up three hits in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Penguins. Gudbranson isn't a big point producer, putting up a career-high 13 points in 76 games last year. The former third-overall pick in 2010 is one of the top defensemen on the team. While his point scoring may not shoot up, he's proven himself to be a dependable blue line option for the Panthers, but not much of a fantasy option.

    Panthers' Erik Gudbranson: Tallies assist in Tuesday's win

    Gudbranson tallied an assist in one shot on goal in Tuesday's victory over the Hurricanes. The 23-year-old Gudbranson has a penchant for logging heavy ice time and providing little offensive push. After posting a minus-41 rating over his first two seasons, he bounced-back to post just a minus-4 rating last season. The tall defenseman doesn't have much in the way of fantasy value.

He's being categorized as day-to-day for the time being, and with only Saturday's game against the Devils remaining on the schedule for the Panthers, it's possible Gudbranson will just be shut down for the season.
  • Panthers' Gudbranson To Return To Lineup Saturday

    Analysis: The return of Steve Kampfer from a groin injury resulted in Erik Gudbranson getting sent to the press box, but coach Gerard Gallant seemed to imply that it was just a one-time decision.
