Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bjugstad (hand) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Bjugstad is expected to miss at least three more weeks of game action after sustaining a broken hand last week. Florida's power play was rather weak last season, as the team ranked 23rd in that category with a conversion rate of 16.9 percent, and the problem is further compounded with significant injuries to Bjugstad and fellow forward Jonathan Huberdeau (Achilles), who is expected to miss 3-to-4 months.

Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Out with broken hand
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bjugstad will miss at least four weeks after breaking his hand, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Bjugstad's absence for the opening month of the season will certainly have an impact on the Panthers' power play, which converted at 16.9 percent last season. The center averaged 2:43 per night on the man advantage, tallying six goals and nine helpers in those situations. Jared McCann figures to pick up the slack on the power play until Bjugstad returns.

Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Would have played in Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nick Bjugstad indicated Wednesday that his head injury was nothing serious and he would have dressed for Game 7 against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Bjugstad's injury appears to be nothing serious and he should enter the offseason with essentially a clean bill of health. Still in the middle of a six-year deal, the 23-year-old forward should retain a significant role with a young Florida Panthers squad in 2016-17. Bjugastd will look to remain healthy next season and to build off a campaign in which he tallied 34 points (15 goals, 19 assists) in 67 games.

Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Skips trip to New York, out for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nick Bjugstad (head) will not play in Game 6 against the Islanders, Shannon Hogan of MSG Networks reports.

Bjugstad didn't travel with the team to New York initially, and skipped morning skate Sunday, so him not playing shouldn't come as a big surprise. The South Florida Sun Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov notes that Bjugstad is doing well, so it seems quite possible he will be available for a Game 7 should the Florida Panthers force it but Derek MacKenzie is expected to center the third line and Logan Shaw the fourth in his absence.

Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Did not travel with team Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bjugstad (head) did not travel with the Panthers to New York on Saturday, but remains questionable for Sunday's Game 6 against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

Bjugstad went face-first into the sideboards during the second overtime of Game 5, suffering a laceration to his head that forced him to receive stitches. Coach Gerard Gallant said Bjugstad was still going through concussion evaluations Saturday morning and wasn't able to travel with the team. Despite not traveling with the team, Bjugstad is still considered day-to-day, but we'll likely have to wait until closer to warmups Sunday before finding out his availability for Game 6.
