Although Dave Bolland is signed through 2018-19, he might have played in his last game with Florida.
The question is if Bolland, who was dealing with a lower-body injury, will be deemed healthy and thus eligible to be bought out. He last played on Dec. 12 and was limited to five points in 25 games. He comes with a $5.5 million cap hit too, so trading him rather than buying him out would be a difficult task. Jun 6 - 5:20 AM

Florida is expected to cut ties with Dave Bolland this off-season.

He is reportedly in Toronto meeting with specialists. If he gets a clean bill of health then Florida will buy out the rest of his contract. Bolland appeared in 25 games with the Panthers in 2015-16 because of lingering issues.
Apr 26 - 1:10 PM

the Florida Panthers placed Dave Bollan on IR ahead of their match with Minnesota on Sunday.

Ten days ago, Panthers coach Gerard Gallant noted that Bolland hadn't "skated in six weeks." So we'd be surprised to ever seen him back in Florida's lineup again this season. Which, if placed on LTIR can help alleviate a pro-rated $5.5M from the cap ahead of Monday's deadline.

At this point, it would be surprising to see Dave Bolland (lower body) even return this season.

"He hasn’t skated in six weeks," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said. "The longer it goes the worse it gets. He's doing rebab, trying to get better. We don't know when it's going to be but we're hoping he will be a part of it." The Miami Herald reports that the Panthers are considering a buyout, but if he's injured that might not be an option. As a side note, we mentioned back in January that Bolland wasn't on the injured reserve list for whatever reason and that's still the case according to the Panthers' website.

Dave Bolland (lower body) still isn't on the injured reserve list.

We mention that because you might reasonably assume otherwise given that he hasn't skated in over a month. For whatever reason though, Florida has opted to keep him on the active roster.

Dave Bolland hasn't played or practiced in more than a month, as he continues to deal with lingering injuries.

One of those ailments is believed to be an ankle problem that goes back to the severed tendon he suffered as a member of the Maple Leafs in 2013. "He can't skate right now, so we're just trying to get him healthy so he can help us in a playoff run," GM Dale Tallon said. "We just want to get him healthy, get him right."
Jan 22 - 8:16 AM

Coach Gerard Gallant doesn't expect to have Dave Bolland (lower body) back on the ice until after the All-Star break.

"We want him to help us in the playoff run," GM Dale Tallon said Friday. "It's lingering, minor stuff. It's been enough to take him off his game. We're going to make sure he's 100 percent. We won't bring him back at 80." Bolland won't travel with the team on their road trip.
Jan 5 - 9:44 AM

Dave Bolland suffered a lower-body injury during his AHL conditioning stint.

Bolland has unfortunately had pretty bad luck when it comes to injuries for years now. He has a goal and five points in 25 contests in 2015-16.

Dave Bolland has been recalled by the Florida Panthers.

Bolland spent a week in the minors for conditioning purposes. Despite the fact that he's rejoined the team, he will not participate in Tuesday's game.
Mon, Dec 21, 2015 03:37:00 PM

Dave Bolland has reportedly been loaned to Florida's AHL affiliate for conditioning.

He doesn't have a point in his last 10 games. Bolland has one goal and five points in 25 matches this season.
Tue, Dec 15, 2015 11:33:00 AM

Dave Bolland will get back into the lineup Tuesday against St. Louis.

Nick Bjugstad is out with an upper-body injury, so Bolland will get back in after missing three games as a healthy scratch.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 06:37:00 PM

Dave Bolland will continue to watch from the press box in Sunday's match with Detroit.

This will be Bolland's third straight game as a healthy scratch. The veteran forward has but five points and little else to show for his efforts through 18 games thus far.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 01:12:00 PM

Dave Bolland and Shawn Thornton will each be scratched from Friday's match with the Islanders.

Unfortunately, neither Bolland nor Thornton have been particularly useful in fantasy this season. Thornton has seen just a dozen games and has accumulated 35 PIMs, while Bolland has five points and little else through 18 games. Making for two very expensive healthy scratches on a team trying to make the playoffs.

Dave Bolland will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

The Panthers will try to give the high-priced forward a kick in the pants by having him watch from the press box. The 29-year-old has one goal and five points in 18 games. Garrett Wilson will also be a healthy scratch.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 07:38:00 PM

Dave Bolland is expected to be back in the lineup on Tuesday night.

He sat out the last two games with a hand injury, but will be back when the Panthers host Calgary. Florida sent Connor Brickley to the minors on Monday to make room for Bolland's return.
