So he takes the morning skate with Fleischmann and Kovalev, but gets scratched before the pre-game skate. I don't know...
With Versteeg likely done for the year, perhaps they ought to tank in a shortened season.
I thought Versteeg was almost back from his groin injury?Florida Panthers’ Kris Versteeg put on injured reserve
The Panthers lost top winger Kris Versteeg with what’s believed to be a minor groin injury Monday as he was put on injured reserve. Florida recalled Drew Shore from AHL San Antonio to replace him on the roster.
Versteeg had hip surgery soon after the Panthers completed their season last year and rehabbed with the team at the beginning of the lockout.
Once medically cleared, Versteeg was then officially locked out like the rest of the NHL players and he returned to his hometown in Alberta. Tallon said Versteeg’s injury wasn’t related to the hip but wouldn’t elaborate further.
Versteeg was hurt during the Panthers’ first practice at the BB&T Center on Friday morning.
Because he was put on the IR list retroactive to that practice, Versteeg is eligible to return Friday. Versteeg tried to warm up at Saturday’s morning skate but left that workout about 15 minutes into it.
But if the goalie troubles continue like this for any number of teams, Gillis will start getting more serious calls.
