Panthers Were Close To Getting Healthy

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

Just when it seems the Panthers were getting healthy this week with the returns of forward Kris Versteeg on Tuesday and Marcel Goc on Thursday, they lost forward Scottie Upshall for at least a month with an injured ankle sustained during a fight with former teamates James White in last night’s wild third period.

Upshall was on crutches today at the Panthers’ practice. He didn’t wish to comment on the injury or anything that occurred last night. I totally respect that. He’s coming off a difficult injury-riddled first season with the Panthers and was hoping to rebound in this short season. Now, that too will be on hold for about a month.

continue for more on the Panthers, including the return of Stephen Weiss.
