  • MacKenzie (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, per the official NHL.com media site. The captain has been sidelined since he left in the first period of a Nov. 11 tilt against New Jersey, and the move will be retroactive to that date. MacKenzie has put up four points in 16 games, and his first shot at returning will be Wednsday against Toronto.

  • MacKenzie (undisclosed) isn't listed as active for Saturday's road game against the Kings. The Panthers are stacked at the center position with Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Troceck and Nick Bjugstad occupying the top three spots, so there's no reason to rush MacKenzie -- a depth skater -- back into the mix. Look for Chase Balisy to continue manning the fourth line in his absence.

  • Panthers' Derek MacKenzie: Remains sidelined
    By RotoWire Staff

    MacKenzie (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Sharks. MacKenzie will miss a second straight game Thursday, but his continued absence likely won't impact many fantasy owners' lineups, as the veteran forward has only notched four assists in 16 games this season. The Panthers should release an update on his status once he's given a clean bill of health.

  • MacKenzie is "very questionable" for Tuesday's matchup with Dallas, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. MacKenzie logged just 1:54 of ice time before being forced out of Saturday's tilt against the Devils and appears set to sit out versus the Stars. Considering the center is still looking for his first goal of the year -- and has just four helpers in 16 outings -- his absence will likely be overlooked except in the deepest of formats.

  • MacKenzie picked up his second helper of the season during Thursday's 7-3 loss to Columbus. The 36-year-old center has just two assists and no goals through the first 12 games for Florida. MacKenzie is essentially locked into his position as a bottom-six forward with virtually no time on the power play, so the scoring opportunities should remain few and far between.
