Nutivaara (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

It's unclear what injury Nutivaara is dealing with, but this essentially rules him out for the first week of the season, assuming it's not a backdated transaction. With Nutivaara hurt, the newly acquired Olli Juolevi could get a shot to play in the Panthers' season opener versus the Penguins on Thursday.
