Kiselevich (jaw) was in a regular practice jersey Friday and head coach Bob Boughner seemed to imply the defenseman will be in the lineup against the Canucks on Saturday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Kiselevich was impressive in the preseason but broke his jaw during the Panthers' final game. Coach Boughner has had great things to say about the 28-year-old blueliner, who will likely take either Jacob MacDonald or Alex Petrovic's spot in the lineup if he is ready to go for Saturday. This would be Kiselevich's debut in the NHL after he spent his last nine seasons in the KHL.
