Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Full practice participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (undisclosed) joined his teammates for Thursday's practice session, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar sat out the team's exhibition against the Lightning but seems to be all set to play in Game 1 against the Islanders on Saturday. The blueliner managed six points in his previous 17 contests and likely won't factor much into the power play, which makes him a mid-range fantasy option, at best.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Won't dress against Tampa Bay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (undisclosed) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's exhibition game against the Lightning, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

It isn't clear why Weegar isn't participating Wednesday, but at this point there's no reason to believe he's in danger of missing Saturday's Game 1 against the Islanders. The 26-year-old defenseman picked up 18 points in 45 games during the regular season.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Rare multi-point effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar scored an empty-net goal and dished an assist in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Ducks.

Wednesday was just the third multi-point outing of the year for Weegar. He added five shots on net and four hits in the contest. The 26-year-old is at a career-high 16 points, 61 shots and 62 hits through 36 appearances this season, but he's not likely to interest fantasy owners outside of deep formats.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Will play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) will skate on Florida's third defensive pairing Saturday against Pittsburgh, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar will give it a go Saturday, but his ice time could be watched closely considering the nagging nature of his injury. Healthy or not, the defenseman hasn't been all that effective from a fantasy standpoint in 2019-20, only managing 12 points in 29 appearances this season.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Could play against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) may play Saturday against the Penguins, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar was originally ruled out, but head coach Joel Quenneville said the defenseman has a chance to play in the Eastern Conference clash. The 26-year-old returned from a 15-game absence Feb. 4 but was unavailable Thursday, so this injury is clearly nagging him. Weegar can be considered a game-time decision.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Still dealing with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar will miss Saturday's clash with the Penguins due to the same upper-body injury that sidelined him previously, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Weegar evidently returned too soon from his upper-body injury when he played in Tuesday's tilt versus Columbus. The team didn't provide an immediate update on the blueliner's timeline, so fantasy owners should consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Sits out with ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar missed Thursday's game against Vegas due to an illness, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar returned Tuesday after he missed 15 straight games with an upper-body issue and is now looking at missing more time. It's unclear how serious the illness is going forward, but expect the team to comment on the 26-year-old's status ahead of Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Back in action Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) was activated from IR and will play Tuesday versus the Blue Jackets, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Weegar will make his first appearance since Dec. 23, and he should immediately draw into the top four. The 26-year-old blueliner has modest offensive upside with 12 points and 46 shots over 28 games, but he doesn't work on the power play.

January 12, 2020 05:04 PM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Likely out until February
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) is unlikely to return before the All-Star break, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

After a Jan. 21 matchup in Chicago, the Panthers are off until February, giving Weegar some extra time to heal up. He's missed the last eight games and hasn't played since Dec. 23. The 26-year-old blueliner has 12 points in 28 games on the season. Riley Stillman should continue playing in his absence.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't play Thursday against Vancouver, NHL.com's Alain Poupart reports.

Weegar will miss an eighth straight game Thursday, but he returned to practice in a non-contact jersey Wednesday, so he's definitely making progress in his recovery. The 26-year-old blueliner will be reevaluated ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Maple Leafs.

January 7, 2020 11:04 AM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Remains unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) isn't expected to play Tuesday against Arizona, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar will miss a seventh straight game Tuesday and remains without a definite timetable for his return to the lineup. Once healthy, the 26-year-old, who's notched 12 points in 28 games this campaign, should return to a top-four role and a spot on the Panthers' penalty-killing unit.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Watching from press box again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't play in Sunday's road game versus Pittsburgh, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

Weegar will miss his sixth straight game, and it's still unclear when he'll return to the lineup. His next chance will be when the Panthers return home Tuesday to face the Coyotes.

January 4, 2020 12:44 PM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't play in Saturday's game against the Sabres, per the NHL's official media site.

Weegar will miss his fifth straight game, so Aaron Ekblad and Keith Yandle will man the top pairing. The 25-year-old Weegar's next chance to play is Sunday's road game versus Pittsburgh.

January 3, 2020 01:08 PM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Not in lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't suit up in Thursday's game against the Senators, per the NHL's official media site.

Weegar continues to miss time while dealing with an upper-body issue and is still without a solidified return date. His next chance to suit up will be on the road against Buffalo.

December 31, 2019 12:28 PM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't play Tuesday against Columbus, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Weegar will miss a third straight game Tuesday and remains without a clear-cut timetable for his return. The 25-year-old will be reevaluated ahead of Thursday's matchup with the Senators.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Set to miss game against Habs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) is doubtful to suit up versus Montreal on Sunday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar was sidelined for Saturday's clash with Detroit due to his upper-body issue and is now expected to miss a second game as well. With Aaron Ekblad unavailable, the Panthers utilized both Riley Stillman and Josh Brown, a combination they will likely continue to play with Sunday.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Won't dress Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) will miss Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Alain Poupart of NHL.com reports.

Taking Weegar's place on Florida's top defensive pairing will be Mark Pysyk. While nothing is confirmed beyond Saturday's contest, don't expect Weegar to be in the Panthers' lineup Sunday versus the Canadiens.

December 28, 2019 11:44 AM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Doubtful for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (undisclosed) is "not likely" to play in Saturday's game against the Red Wings, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar didn't participate in Saturday's morning skate, so it's unlikely he suits up. Mark Pysyk is expected to bump up to the top line in Weegar's place. If Weegar is indeed ruled out for Saturday's game, he'll likely carry a similar doubtful tag into Sunday's matchup against the Canadiens.

December 18, 2019 01:52 PM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Notches assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar picked up a helper in Monday's 6-1 win over Ottawa.

Weegar's offense has sputtered a bit since the beginning of the season, as he's only picked up two assists since returning from a facial injury on Nov. 30. He still anchors the top pairing with Aaron Ekblad, however, averaging 19:35 in ice time and scoring 12 points in 25 games this season.

December 10, 2019 05:16 AM
Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: First point since injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar recorded an assist in a 5-1 win over the Sharks on Sunday.

After a great start to the season, Weegar was sidelined for eight games after being hit in the head by a puck. Now back in the lineup and flanking Aaron Ekblad on the top pairing, Weegar looks to pick up where he left off. The 25-year-old has put up three goals and 11 points in 21 games so far this season.
