Trocheck (undisclosed) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Penguins.

Trocheck was absent from Monday's practice and head coach Joel Quenneville is unsure whether his second-line centre will be available on Tuesday. The Panthers recently signed Brian Boyle to a one-year deal and the veteran was skating in Trocheck's spot in Monday's session.

The Panthers signed Brian Boyle to a one-year, one-way contract.

Boyle has bounced around the NHL in recent years, playing for the Lightning, Maple Leafs, Devils and Rangers in the last three seasons. Boyle split last year between New Jersey and Nashville and finished the season with 18 goals and six assists (24 points) in 73 games. With Henrik Borgstrom going back to the AHL, Boyle figures to play a bottom-6 role with his new squad.

Montembeault led the Panthers onto the ice for warmups.

Montembeault allowed two goals on 28 shots in the Panthers loss to the Islanders last Saturday. It was a solid first start for Montembeault, who has stopped 45 of the 48 shots (.938 SV%) that he has faced so far this season. Montembeault should be left on the bench on Saturday though. The Predators are one of the best home teams in hockey and enter play leading the NHL in goal-scoring (4.29 GF/pg).

Bobrovsky will start Monday afternoon in New Jersey.

Bobrovsky allowed two goals on 32 shots in the Panthers’ shootout loss in Buffalo last Friday. Samuel Montembeault started his first game on Saturday, so they’ll come back to Bobrovsky on Monday afternoon. The Devils are averaging just 1.80 goals per game (30th in the NHL) through five games, so Bobrovsky should start the week with a ‘W’.

Montembeault will start Saturday against the Islanders.

Montembeault allowed one goal on 20 shots after replacing Sergei Bobrovsky in the Panthers loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday. With Bobrovsky starting Friday in Buffalo, Montembeault will make his first start of the season on the tail-end of the back-to-back. It’s a solid matchup against an offensively challenged Islanders team, making him a reasonable spot-start option if you’re desperate.

Bobrovsky will start Friday in Buffalo.

Bobrovsky was yanked after giving up four goals on 14 shots in the Panthers blowout loss to the Hurricanes on Tuesday. His Panthers career is off to a rocky start, posting an .859 SV% through three games. Bobrovsky has been notorious for slow starts in recent years though, so expect him to get back on track soon enough.

Bobrovsky will start Tuesday vs. the Hurricanes.

Bobrovsky allowed three goals on 35 shots in the Panthers win over the Lightning on Saturday. Bobrovsky has allowed seven goals on 64 shots (.890 SV%) in his first two starts with the Panthers, both of them coming against the high-powered Lightning. Tonight he faces a Hurricanes team that has started the season 3-0-0 while ranking second in Shots-per game (38.3) and averaging 3.33 goals per game.

Hawryluk will make his season debut on Saturday.

Hawryluk, 23, split his 2019 campaign between the AHL and NHL. During his time with the Panthers, he had seven goals and five assists (12 points) in 42 games. While with Springfield, he tallied 32 points (8G / 24A) in 31 games. He will replace Denis Malgin in the lineup on Saturday.

Bobrovsky will start Saturday vs. the Lightning.

Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 29 shots in the Panthers opening night loss in Tampa Bay. It was a tough start to his Panthers career, but matchups don’t come more difficult than the Lightning. He’ll look to bounce back against the same high-powered squad tonight, but use Thursday as a cautionary tale.

Bobrovsky will make his Panthers debut in Tampa Bay on Thursday.

It shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the Panthers prized offseason acquisition will start on opening night. Bobrovsky has started 60-plus games for three straight seasons and has led the NHL in wins (115), tied for second in SV% (.922) and tied for third in GAA (2.35) over that span. You didn’t draft Bobrovsky to bench him, but he draws a brutal matchup to open the season.

Connolly (undisclosed) is expected to play in the Panthers season opener.

Connolly returned to Panthers practice on Monday and head coach Joel Quenneville said that “it looks like he’s going to be more than ready for opening night.” Connolly is set to play a top-6 role with his new team, skating on the second line with Vincent Trocheck and Mike Hoffman. That should set him up for a career-high in ice-time and should allow him to be at least a 20-20 player again in 2020.
