Vincent Trocheck's scoring streak was halted at six.

With no points against the Canucks on Friday night, Trocheck's six-game point streak and four-game goal-scoring spree, both came to an end. During the streak, Trocheck registered 10 points, inlcuding five goals. Although the Panthers are struggling, Trocheck has certainly stepped up after the injury to Aleksander Barkov.

There is a good chance that Nick Bjugstad could return to action right after the All-Star break.

He has missed the last two weeks with a groin injury but seems on the verge of a return. Get ready to activate Bjugstad after next weekend.

It is possible that Alex Petrovic will play a game before the All-Star break.

Jaromir Jagr scored the only goal for the Florida Panthers in a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks.

Jared McCann fed Jagr on the doorstep for an easy tap in on the power play. The goal was Jagr's 9th of the season and 29th point in 48 games. The 44-year-old impressively continues to find ways to score. He is only an effective fantasy option in deeper formats.

Roberto Luongo stopped 30 of 32 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers on Friday.

Luongo gave up a goal to Henrik Sedin for his 1000th career point in the NHL, he then went and congratulated his former teammates on the great accomplishment. Luongo has now lost three straight games in goal for the Panthers, giving up 10 goals during that span. His record drops to 13-13-5 with a 2.44 goals against average and a .921 save percentage.

Don't expect to see Reto Berra tend net for the Panthers so long as Luongo is healthy and good.

Florida plays just twice more after tonight, on Monday the 23rd against Arizona and finally on Thursday the 26th against Tampa Bay before the All-Star break hits. Of course things are subject to change, but that's more than enough time for Luongo to get his rest and lead the team.

Roberto Luongo will be in net against the Canucks on Friday.

It's been a tale of two Luongo's over his last five games. A combined one goal against in two victories, and four goals against each in the three losses. Fortunately,he'll be facing his most recent organization tonight, and he stopped 37 of 39 shots in victory.

Jonathan Huberdeau is still on track for a possible return in early March from an Achilles tendon injury.

Interim coach Tom Rowe said Thursday that there is a possibility that Huberdeau may not play at all this season. The Panthers will not put him back in the lineup until he is 100 percent, but if he is ready to play then he still could make his season debut late in the year.

Aleksander Barkov is dealing with an upper-body injury, according to interim coach Tom Rowe.

It was initially reported as a lower-body ailment. Barkov has been receiving physical therapy, but it's unclear when he'll be back on the ice. He hasn't played since Dec. 28 and the Panthers have not ruled out the possibility that he may not play again this season. We will keep you posted on his status.
Jan 20 - 8:32 AM

Jonathan Huberdeau (Achilles) might not play at all in 2016-17.

Losing Huberdeau has been a major blow to the Panthers and not getting him back at all will severely hinder their chances of making the playoffs. As Panthers coach Tom Rowe noted though, Florida will not rush back one of their franchise players. Huberdeau has 58 goals and 172 points in 272 career games.

Aleksander Barkov (lower body) might not be able to return this season.

Barkov hasn't played since Dec. 28. Losing him would be a big blow to the Panthers' chances of making the playoffs, but it's vital that they be careful with Barkov as they hope he'll be a major part of their franchise for many years to come. Before getting hurt he had nine goals and 27 points in 36 contests this season.

James Reimer is with his wife for the birth of their child. Berra will probably end up serving as the backup goalie on Friday.

James Reimer has temporarily parted ways with the Panthers so that he can be with his wife for the birth of their child.

Reimer will probably miss Friday's game in Vancouver as a result. Maybe he'll rejoin the team in Arizona before Monday's contest.
