from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,
Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski is set to play his first game in nearly 10 months and since undergoing resurfacing hip surgery.
The surgery, an alternative, less invasive procedure to a full hip replacement is relativey new, and it's not believed than any athlete from the four major North American professional sports has ever made it back from.
"I'm excited, for sure," Jovanovski said after the Panthers' morning skate Saturday. "It's been a long while. For me, there's been a lot of days where it beats up on you, but it's all worth it for having the opportunity to play a game again.
"You got as the game goes. Really no time limit on what my minutes will be. Try to get into the flow of things. I think the 12-15 minute mark would be a good time for me.''
