Panthers' Chris Driedger: Stays sharp with Bobrovsky out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger made 26 saves in a 2-1 win over St. Louis on Monday.

Driedger has started three consecutive games in the absence of injured No. 1 Sergei Bobrovsky (lower body) and has held his opponents to a grand total of four goals over the time. Driedger owns a .955 save percentage during his current run and will try to keep it rolling Thursday in St. Louis.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Between pipes against Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will tend the twine versus St. Louis on the road Monday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Driedger will make his third straight start after having registered a 1-0-1 record and 1.46 GAA in his prior two outings. The Winnipeg native should continue to see a heavy workload while Sergei Bobrovsky (lower body) remains on the shelf. Given his strong performance this season, Driedger could earn himself a few extra starts down the stretch even once Bobrovsky is cleared to play.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Great story continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger made 33 saves in a 4-1 win over Montreal on Saturday.

He has a great story. Coming into this season, Driedger hadn't played an NHL game since Oct. 28, 2016. Now, he's 6-2-1 with a 2.16 GAA and .936 save percentage. Driedger came up huge early in the second period when he stoned Max Domi on a breakaway to keep the game knotted at zeros. Snag him now -- the Panthers are surging.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Facing Canadiens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will defend the home goal during Saturday's matchup with Montreal, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Driedger played well in his return from injury Thursday against the Bruins, stopping 26 of 28 shots, but he ultimately suffered his third loss of the campaign due to insufficient goal support. He'll attempt to shake off that tough loss and pick up his sixth victory of the season in a home matchup with a Montreal club that's averaging 3.21 goals per game on the road this year, fifth most in the NHL.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Like he never missed time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger put up 26 saves in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins on Thursday night.

It was his first game back from a three-month absence to heal an injured groin and Driedger looked sharp -- the rust came off fast against the powerhouse Bruins. Still, his mates struggled to beat Jaroslav Halak and it took overtime to solve the stalemate. Driedger looks like a solid option in daily formats.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Taking on Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will defend the blue paint during Thursday's home game versus the Bruins, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Driedger has been sidelined for over three months with a groin injury, but he was playing pretty well prior to his lengthy absence, posting a 5-2-0 record while maintaining an impressive 2.35 GAA and .932 save percentage through nine appearances. He'll attempt to shake off the rust and pick up his first win since December in a tough home matchup with a hot Bruins team that's 20-10-3 on the road this year.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Will be recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Joel Quenneville, Driedger (groin) will be recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Springfield on Tuesday, David Work of WPLG Local 10 News reports.

Driedger's return to health couldn't have come at a better time for the Panthers, as Sergei Bobrovsky is currently day-to-day with a lower-body injury. The 25-year-old hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since Jan. 16 against the Kings, but he'll likely be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Bruins.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Sent out for conditioning assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger (groin) will join AHL Springfield on a conditioning assignment.

The Thunderbirds are in action versus AHL Bridgeport on Friday, which figures to allow Driedger to get back between the pipes for the first time since Jan. 16. If the netminder comes through without any setbacks, he could be in line to start for the Panthers in their upcoming back-to-back versus Chicago and Calgary on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Close to returning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers head coach Joel Quenneville said Monday that Driedger (groin) is "very close to returning," Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Driedger hasn't played since suffering his groin injury on Jan. 16, missing the last 16 games. When he's activated, it's unclear if he or Samuel Montembault will stay with the big club as the No. 2 netminder behind Sergei Bobrovsky. The 25-year-old has been solid with the Panthers, recording a .932 save percentage and 2.35 GAA in nine NHL appearances.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Nearing return to ice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger (groin) is accompanying the team on its current five-game road trip, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Driedger has been out since Jan. 16 when he left the game against the Kings after suffering the groin injury. This news is a positive sign that the netminder is nearing a return to game action, as the five-game road trip started Monday in San Jose. Driedger will need to be activated off injured reserve before entering the lineup, so expect another word on his status in the coming days.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Likely out until March
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger (groin) is expected to be sidelined until March, per George Richards of The Athletic.

Driedger has put up decent numbers for the Panthers this season, as he went 5-2-0 with a 2.35 GAA in nine appearances prior to getting hurt. With the Winnipeg native on the shelf, Samuel Montembeault figures to serve as the No. 2 option behind Sergei Bobrovsky.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Will miss multiple weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger (lower body) will miss "several weeks" with a groin injury.

Driedger had an MRI on Friday, and it appears he's dealing with a serious issue. The Panthers called up Sam Montembeault to serve as Sergei Bobrovsky's backup. The 25-year-old Driedger will be out until at least after the All-Star break is done, but it sounds like it will be a longer recovery than that.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Set for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will undergo an MRI on Friday for a suspected groin injury, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Driedger has been performing well of late, as he was 2-1-0 with a 2.44 GAA in his last five outings. The Panthers will need to call up a player from the minors if Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) is unable to give it a go versus the Red Wings on Saturday.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Leaves Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger (lower body) was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Kings, David Work of WPLG Local 10 News reports.

Driedger tried to stretch to make a save and looked to be in considerable pain as he skated gingerly to the bench with 9:55 remaining in the first period. He was replaced by Samuel Montembeault in net.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Making second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will defend the blue paint during Thursday's home clash with the Kings, NHL.com's Alain Poupart reports.

Driedger was pretty solid in his last start Sunday against Toronto, stopping 43 of 47 shots en route to a convincing 8-4 victory. The 25-year-old netminder will try to pick up his sixth win of the season in a favorable home matchup with an L.A. team that's 7-15-4 on the road this year.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Picks up win in high-scoring game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger stopped 43 of 47 shots in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

This matchup proved quite unfriendly to goaltenders, although Driedger posted a .915 save percentage in the contest given the high volume of shots he faced. The 25-year-old improved to 5-2-0 with a 2.40 GAA and a .931 save percentage in eight games. Sergei Bobrovsky (upper body) is expected back for Thursday's game against the Kings, but if that changes, expect Driedger to get the nod instead.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Patrolling crease at home
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger will start Sunday's home clash against Toronto, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

With starter Sergei Bobrovsky nursing an undisclosed injury, Driedger will get the spot-start. The 25-year-old has been solid this season, going 4-2-0 along with a 2.16 GAA and .935 save percentage in seven appearances. Driedger will face a tough matchup Sunday against a Maple Leafs offense that ranks third in the league in goals per game (3.58).

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Yields two power-play goals in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger allowed four goals on 36 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Coyotes on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old was pretty solid at even strength, stopping 28 of 30 shots, but he yielded a pair of power-play goals as well in the defeat. Despite the poor outing, though, Driedger still has more than solid numbers since making his debut with the Panthers on Nov. 30. He is 4-2-0 with a 2.16 GAA and .935 save percentage in seven games this season.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Slated to start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger is in line to start between the posts in Tuesday's home clash with the Coyotes, David Work of WPLG Local 10 News reports.

Driedger was fantastic in his last appearance Sunday against the Penguins, turning aside 31 of 32 shots en route to an impressive 4-1 road win. The 25-year-old netminder will attempt to pick up a fourth straight victory in a home matchup with a surging Arizona team that's currently riding a three-game winning streak.

Panthers' Chris Driedger: Fourth win in five starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Driedger made 31 saves Sunday in a 4-1 win over Pittsburgh.

The 25-year-old spelled struggling No. 1 netminder Sergei Bobrovsky and was rock-solid for the Panthers once again. He has now won four of the five starts he's made since being recalled from AHL Springfield in late November. Driedger is 4-1-0 in six total appearances and is sporting a 1.82 GAA and .944 save percentage.
