Noon Player Notes in the Draft (Dec 8)
This season has not been kind to the Florida Panthers, especially in the health department. Last night, with the Winnipeg Jets in town, forward Aleksander Barkov was forced from the game in the 2nd period with an upper-body injury. There were no immediate details last night or first thing this morning, likely waiting for tests to be completed on the scoring forward before making any official announcements. The Panthers host the Avalanche on Saturday night, so we'll likely know before then, I would imagine.
Chris' team got off to a pretty good start in the first month of the season, but has since fallen off a bit. His team is currently 11th, 19 points back of 1st place, 17 points back of the money. If Barkov is out for any extended period, this could drop his team back even further.
