Panthers' Vincent Trocheck: Stretchered off ice Monday
Trocheck (lower body) was taken out of the game in Ottawa on a stretcher Monday, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
Trocheck took a nasty spill into the boards and stayed down, appearing to be in serious pain. The 25-year-old is likely going to miss some time with the injury and an update should be available after Monday's game.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' James Reimer: Will face Senators
Reimer will man the crease Monday in Ottawa, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
It's been more than a week between starts for Reimer, with his last action coming against Ottawa on Nov. 11. The 30-year-old netminder has faced the Senators more than any other team in his career, and Monday's contest will be the 25th regular-season matchup. Meanwhile, since dropping its game to the Panthers, Ottawa has won two straight.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Micheal Haley: Added to roster
Haley (personal) has been added to the active roster and taken off non-roster, injured reserve, per the NHL media site.
It's not clear whether Haley will immediately slot into the lineup against the Senators on Monday, but he is at least an option for the Senators now following his conditioning assignment in the minors. Considering the Ontario native managed just nine points in 75 games last year, fantasy owners probably shouldn't be banking on heavy offensive production from him once he does hit the ice....

Panthers' Dryden Hunt: Ascends to big club
Hunt was recalled by the Panthers on Sunday.
Hunt has been solid with AHL Springfield thus far, scoring eight goals and adding four assists in 15 games. The 22-year-old is expected to work in a bottom-six role, and his first chance to enter the lineup will be a road contest Monday versus the Senators.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Denis Malgin: Assigned to AHL
Malgin was assigned to AHL Springfield on Sunday.
Malgin was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Rangers, but he has five points in 14 games in a bottom-six role. The 21-year-old will look to capture more responsibility in the minors and continue to craft his game.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Maxim Mamin: Heads to minors
Mamim was assigned to AHL Springfield on Sunday.
Mamim was a healthy scratch for five straight games before drawing into Saturday's game versus the Rangers, and he dropped a minus-2 mark in just 4:01 of ice time. With no points in seven games, Mamin's absence doesn't affect fantasy teams.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Micheal Haley: Returns from conditioning stint
Haley (personal) was recalled from his conditioning assignment by the Panthers.
Haley started a league-sponsored assistance program in October, but now that he two games in the minors (one goal, one assist) under his belt he'll be ready for NHL action. Expect the rugged winger to work in a bottom-six role once he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Collects another assist
Barkov tallied his 10th assist on the season during a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
With the offensively explosive seasons Evgenii Dadonov and Mike Hoffman have had, Barkov's performance has been overlooked. He has 15 points in 17 games, and most of those have come 5v5. With the consistency Barkov has shown in the past, it wouldn't be surprising if he ended up leading the Panthers in points at the end of the season.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Goals in three straight
Ekblad scored in his third straight game during a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
After going goalless in 14 games to start the season, Ekblad has found the back of the net once in his last three games, all on the power play. The 22-year-old fired five shots at the net and added three hits as the Panthers dropped their second straight.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Evgenii Dadonov: Tallies an assist
Dadonov assisted on the Panther's opening goal as they fell to the Rangers 4-2 on Saturday.
Although Dadonov had his point streak ended against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, the Russian winger got right back at it with another assist against the Rangers. That keeps him over a point-per-game pace with 18 points in 17 games, and he is one of only three Panthers forwards with a positive plus/minus.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Mark Pysyk: Returns to the lineup
Pysyk started for the first time in 11 games in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
His first six games were missed due to an upper-body injury, but Pysyk has been a healthy scratch since then. Head coach Bob Boughner was happy with how his defense was playing until the Panthers got blown out 7-3 by the Blue Jackets on Thursday. Pysyk registered one shot and three hits against the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Maxim Mamin: Draws back in lineup
Mamin saw his first start in 15 days during a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
After being a healthy scratch for five games, Mamin's return featured just 4:01 of ice time. After being on the ice for the first two goals against in the first period, Mamin saw only a few more shifts for the rest of the game. With Michael Haley coming back to the team after an AHL conditioning shift, Mamin may find himself being sent down to the minors soon.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Roberto Luongo: Allows 10 goals over two starts
Luongo made 20 saves in a 4-2 loss to the Rangers on Saturday.
After a strong start when he returned from injury, Bobby Lou has now allowed 10 goals in his last two starts. We suspect he'll get a rest soon. Luongo is 39 and he just can't carry as heavy a load as he once did.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Mike Hoffman: Streak at 15 games
Hoffman scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers.
Hoffman extended his point streak to 15 games and 18 points (eight goals, 10 assists). He's loving life in Florida and should be a mainstay on every active roster.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Denis Malgin: Sent to press box Saturday
Malgin will be a healthy scratch Saturday, as the Panthers play host to the Rangers, Jon Lane of NHL.com reports.
Maxim Mamin reportedly will sub in for Malgin, despite the center picking up his fifth point of the season (an assist) in Thursday's road loss to the Blue Jackets.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Alex Petrovic: Onlooker for Saturday's game
Petrovic will watch Saturday's road game against the Rangers from the press box, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
The Alberta native takes a seat having gone 11 straight games without a point. Most defensemen aren't going to be ripe fantasy options since they need to shut down the opposition as the top priority, but every now and then you'll come across a blueliner who habitually joins the rush and chips in some goals and assists. Petrovic is not that guy, but he does have 38 hits and 20 blocked shots over 11 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Panthers' Roberto Luongo: Starting in New York
Luongo will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Rangers, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
Luongo struggled in his last start Thursday against Columbus, surrendering six goals on 36 shots en route to an ugly 7-3 loss. The veteran netminder will look to bounce back and pick up his fifth victory of the campaign in a road matchup with a Rangers team that's only averaging 2.67 goals per game at home this season, 27th in the NHL....
