Sceviour (hand/wrist) missed practice Wednesday and will be out "multiple weeks", Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports. The 29-year-old was already placed on injured reserve on Feb. 11 but will be looking at a lengthy absence. Sceviour has been decent, accumulating five goals and 14 points in 49 games. The Panthers will miss Sceviour on the penalty kill, as he's averaged 2:08 of shorthanded ice time this season.
Sceviour's injury that landed him on IR is an upper-body injury, Jameson Olive of FloridaPanthers.com reports. Sceviour will be missed particularly on the penalty kill. "He's still being assessed today," coach Bob Boughner said. "It's for sure upper-body, and we'll know more [soon]. He's not going to play, probably, for a while. It's a tough injury."
Sceviour (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, George Richards of The Athletic reports. It's unclear what's bothering Sceviour since he played in Saturday's game versus the Capitals and scored his fifth goal of the season. His spot on IR will open up a roster spot for the recently recalled Jamie McGinn. Sceviour won't be able to re-enter the lineup until Feb. 17 versus the Canadiens.
Sceviour scored his first goal in 23 games in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win against the Penguins. Goal scoring has come few and far between for Sceviour, who is on pace for only seven goals -- the fewest he's ever scored in a season. His lack of production has relegated him to the fourth line, where he will likely stay unless the Panthers ship out a few pieces before the trade deadline.
Sceviour collected his first fighting major of the season during Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Penguins. The Panthers did not like a hit Zach Aston-Reese threw on Frank Vatrano, so Sceviour went after Aston-Reese looking for payback. Frustration mounted all game for the Panthers during the blowout, as Sceviour's bout was one of two fights that broke out during the contest.
