Florida Panthers

Barkov (upper-body) is expected to play Monday in Detroit.

Barkov missed Saturday’s loss to Colorado but was back on the Panthers top line at Monday’s morning skate so look for him to suit up against the Red Wings tonight. Barkov has placed himself firmly as one of the NHL’s best centres this season and comes into Monday with four goals and two assists (six points) in his last six games.

Barkov (upper-body) will not play Saturday vs. the Avalanche.

Barkov suffered the injury midway through Thursday’s win over the Jets but it sounds like a minor injury that will only cost him a game or two. After tonight the Panthers travel to Detroit for a meeting with the Red Wings on Monday, so monitor Barkov’s status during their morning skate in a few days.

Barkov is day-to-day with an upper-body; doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Avalanche.

Barkov picked up one assist in 12:12 TOI before leaving last night’s win over the Jets with an upper-body injury. Barkov has been all but ruled out of Saturday’s game but the Panthers are hopeful that he will play Monday vs. the Red Wings. Their optimism suggests that the injury is very minor so it looks like Barkov owners have dodged a bullet.

Barkov (upper-body) will return to the Panthers lineup on Friday.

Barkov has been sidelined since December 28th, but will return to the Panthers’ top line tonight. In addition to Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau will make his season debut which is huge for Barkov. They played together a ton last season and should be reunited tonight. Before getting hurt, Barkov had nine goals and 18 assists (27 points) in 36 games.

Barkov (upper-body) is at least two weeks away from returning.

There were rumblings that Barkov could miss the rest of the 2016-17 season, but it seems like if he can avoid surgery he will return at some point this season. Barkov was having a great year, scoring nine goals with 18 assists (27 points) in 36 games and it appears as if he is still at least two weeks away from returning to the lineup.

Barkov left Wednesday’s game with an undisclosed injury and did not return.

Barkov played 9:05 TOI before retiring to the dressing room in the Panthers’ shootout loss to the Maple Leafs. Panthers’ head coach Tom Rowe did not have an update on Barkov postgame, but he is considered questionable for Thursday’s game vs. the Canadiens. If he doesn’t play, expect Vincent Trocheck to play a significant role.

The Panthers have activated Aleksander Barkov (upper-body) from IR; will play on Thursday.

Barkov missed the last six games with an upper-body injury he suffered in Detroit on February 8th. Barkov should immediately be re-inserted into your fantasy lineup. He has 16 goals and 19 assists (35 points) in 43 games this season. He’ll centre the top line between Jaromir Jagr and Jussi Jokinen.

Barkov (upper-body) will not play on Tuesday; no timetable for his return.

Barkov suffered an upper-body injury on a hit by Red Wings’ forward Justin Abdelkader on Monday. With Barkov out, Nick Bjugstad will skate on the Panthers’ top line with Jonathan Huberdeau and Jaromir Jagr. There was no update on the severity of Barkov’s injury, but we should get an update in the next 48 hours.

Barkov left Monday's game with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Barkov was crunched in his own zone by Red Wings forward Justin Abdelkader and left the game with a potential concussion. Barkov has turned into a star this season and this would be a huge blow to the Panthers offence if he misses an extended period of time. If he’s out for any period of time, look for Nick Bjugstad to play an extended role for the Panthers.
