by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Joel Quenneville expects Barkov (lower body) to be ready to return at some point during the Panthers' current four-game homestand, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

Barkov won't be available for Tuesday's game versus Detroit, but he's clearly inching closer to a return to action.
