Panthers May Be Shopping For A Backup Goalie

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

According to the Panthers, Clemmensen needed to have a ‘minor procedure at Doctors Hospital in Miami.

As of yesterday, I heard Clemmensen could miss at least the first few games of the regular season. That was before he had another surgery.

Clemmensen was supposed to start Tuesday against the Dallas Stars but now it looks like Tyler Plante will get that look.

So, with the Panthers going into the season with Clemmensen out, don’t be surprised if it is Plante who stays and Jacob Markstrom who heads down to the AHL.

Or, if the Panthers think Clemmensen will miss significant time, they could look around and try and find an experienced backup.
