    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Out Thursday

    Mitchell (undisclosed) will miss Thursday's tilt against the Red Wings, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports. Mitchell will miss at least two more games, as he's also set to be out for Tuesday's contest against the Capitals, but coach Gerard Gallant indicated the defenseman had resumed skating. His next chance to slot back into the lineup will come Saturday against the Penguins, though it remains unclear if that's a realistic return date.

    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Could be ready after break

    Mitchell (undisclosed) could be ready to return after the All-Star break, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. The news essentially rules out Mitchell for the Panthers' last game before the All-Star break Tuesday, but indicates some extended rest ahead of the team's following contest Feb. 2 may be sufficient enough for him to return. There's still no guarantee that will be the case, but the team should continue to provide updates as the date approaches.

    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Will miss next two games

    Mitchell (undisclosed) has been ruled out of the Panthers' next two contests, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Given his recovery timetable, the earliest Mitchell will be ready to return to action is Tuesday against Toronto. The 38-year-old blueliner has been a bit of a defensive liability for the Panthers of late, and has tallied just seven points (one goal, six assists) in 46 games this season.

    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Horrible defensive showing Monday

    Mitchell was on the ice for all four goals scored by Edmonton in Monday's loss. The poor effort puts him at minus-2 on the season. Mitchell was chased down in the defensive zone and hastily made a pass that was intercepted and resulted in a goal by Oilers winger Jordan Eberle. Turnovers like that are rarely seen from the 38-year-old, but this may be a sign that he doesn't have much left in tank. Mitchell is now minus-8 over his last three games.

    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Scores the winner

    Mitchell scored the game-winning goal Friday against the Hurricanes. The 38-year-old defenseman brings a cagey veteran presence, but he doesn't bring the goals, as he has never had more than five in a season, and he hasn't had more than 12 points in three seasons.

    Panthers' Willie Mitchell: Assist in victory Tuesday

    Mitchell tallied an assist, picked up two hits and five blocked shots in Tuesday's victory over the Blues. While not usually a big shot blocker, over the past 10 days, Mitchell has 11 blocked shots in those four games. He's not going to put up a ton of points, but the 38-year-old is the veteran presence the team needs on the blue line.

  • Panthers' Mitchell Tallies Rare Goal In Win

    News: Willie Mitchell netted his third goal of the season in Thursday's 6-1 victory over the Hurricanes.
    Analysis: Willie Mitchell's goal kicked off the scoring for the Panthers, and nearly held up as the game-winner before the Canes' Chris Terry ended Roberto Luongo's shutout bid with 1:19 remaining in the third period. The 37-year-old Mitchell can rarely be counted on to provide much offense; in fact, his four shot attempts on the evening tied his highest total for any game this season.
  • Panthers Activate Mitchell From IR

    News: Willie Mitchell (illness) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.
    Analysis: After a 16-game absence, the bulk of which was due to an upper-body injury, Willie Mitchell is expected to make his return to the lineup Saturday against the Islanders. Prior to missing time, Mitchell was gobbling up 22:12 of ice time per game while manning a top-four spot on defense for the Panthers. A similar role likely awaits for Mitchell again, but his limitations as a puck mover likely won't yield much fantasy value. He has only two goals and five points over 49 games this season.
  • Panthers' Mitchell Expected Back Saturday

    News: Willie Mitchell (illness) is expected to play Saturday against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
    Analysis: After missing 15 games due to an upper-body injury, Willie Mitchell was poised to return to the lineup Thursday against the Stars before a bout with the stomach flu set in. After taking part in Saturday's morning skate, Mitchell looks to be fully recovered from both the injury and illness, though the Panthers have yet to formally activate him from IR. Expect that to happen at some point in the afternoon prior to the game.
