The Penguins have acquired Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann from the Panthers for Derick Brassard, Riley Sheahan, a 2019 2nd round pick and two 2019 4th round picks.
Bjugstad (upper-body) will return to the Panthers lineup on Sunday.
Bjugstad has been out since December 6th but will draw back in tonight in Vancouver. Bjugstad, who has four goals and six assists (10 points) in 27 games this season, will start on the top-line with Aleksander Barkov.
Bjugstad (upper-body) won’t play Thursday; targeting a return on Saturday.
Bjugstad took part in the Panthers morning skate but will not play Thursday against Toronto. Bjugstad could potentially return on Saturday, which would force the Panthers to demote a forward.
Bjugstad (upper-body) will not travel on the Panthers two-game road-trip.
Bjugstad missed Saturday’s game against the Rangers and will miss at least two more games with an upper-body injury. With Bjugstad out, Troy Brouwer was elevated into the top-6 at Monday’s practice.
Bjugstad is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Bjugstad was not on the ice for the Panthers morning skate and head coach Bob Boughner announced that he is day-to-day. Don’t expect to see Bjugstad on Saturday, which means Denis Malgin will draw into the lineup.
Bjugstad (undisclosed) is on the ice for warmups; expected to play vs. the Avalanche.
Bjugstad (undisclosed) is probable to play on Thursday.
Bjugstad left Tuesday’s game early and practiced in a non-contact sweater on Wednesday. Despite all of that, it looks like Bjugstad will play vs. the Avalanche. Bjugstad has just 10 points (4G / 6A) in 26 games this season.
Bjugstad (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.
Bjugstad was on the ice for Wednesday’s practice in a non-contact sweater after leaving Tuesday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Bob Boughner said Bjugstad was feeling “surprisingly decent” and listed him as a game-time decision for tonight’s game vs. the Avalanche. Juho Lammikko centred the third line with Bjugstad limited in practice.
Bjugstad (upper-body) will be in the Panthers lineup on Tuesday.
Bjugstad is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Bjugstad missed Monday’s practice so his status for Tuesday’s game is in question. The Panthers called the winger “day-to-day” so monitor his status during Tuesday’s morning skate. With Bjugstad absent today, Denis Malgin skated on the Panthers’ top line and Mike Hoffman moved back to the second line.
Bjugstad (groin) will return to the Panthers’ lineup on Thursday.
Bjugstad has missed the last nine games with a groin injury, but will return to centre the Panthers’ fourth line on Thursday. Bjugstad has had a tough season, posting just two points (1G / 1A) in 21 games so far. His production has fallen off immensely since his breakout 2014-15 campaign.
The Panthers have placed Nick Bjugstad (lower-body) on IR.
Bjugstad suffered a lower-body injury early in last night’s game vs. the Predators. Bjugstad will miss at least one week after being placed on IR this morning. Expect Shawn Thornton to get back into the Panthers’ lineup with Bjugstad out.
Bujgstad left Friday’s game with a lower-body injury.
Bjugstad played just 4:18 TOI before retiring to the dressing room last night. Panthers’ head coach Tom Rowe did not have an update on Bjugstad after the game, so considering him questionable for Saturday’s game vs. the Bruins. This would be a big loss for a team already without their top centre Aleksander Barkov.
Bjugstad (hand) has been cleared to make his season debut on Tuesday.
Bjugstad missed the first 19 games of the season with a broken hand, but will make his season debut Tuesday. There was no word on where Bjugstad would fit into the lineup, but expect a full update during Tuesday’s morning skate. The Panthers went 10-8-1 without Bjugstad, but his return will help immensely. He had 34 points (15G / 19A) in 67 games a season ago.
Bjugstad (hand) will not play on Tuesday; not expected to play Thursday either.
Bjugstad’s season debut continues to be pushed back as it looks like he won’t be able to return until Saturday at the earliest. Bjugstad’s return adds a ton of depth to the Panthers’ lineup. Monitor his status leading into the weekend.
Bjugstad (hand) is expected to miss one more week.
Bjugstad was expected to return this week, but head coach Gerard Gallant said that he will likely miss seven more days. Continue to monitor Bjugstad’s status as the week progresses, but don’t expect him to make his season debut until next Tuesday at the earliest.
Bjugstad (hand) will miss the next two games; could make his season debut next Monday.
Bjugstad has missed the first 10 games of the season with a broken hand and will miss at least two more games. Head coach Gerard Gallant said Bjugstad is getting close and should return to the lineup next week.

Bjugstad will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand.
Bjugstad broke his hand during Tuesday’s preseason game against the Stars. The 24-year-old is a key face-off man and third line centre for the Panthers, but will miss at least the first month of the season.
The Panthers have activated Nick Bjugstad (migraines) off of IR; expected to play on Sunday.
Bjugstad missed the entire month of December because of migraines, but has been practicing and his activation from IR today suggests that he will play for the first time since November 29th. Bjugsad has 12 points (7G / 5A) in 23 games this season.
