Jaromir Jagr won't participate in the 2016 World Championships.

The Czech team was interested in adding him and while Jagr appreciates that, he wants to rest after playing in 85 regular season and playoff games. The 44-year-old forward had 27 goals and 66 points in the 2015-16 campaign.

Greg McKegg went unclaimed on waivers.

That frees McKegg up to help the AHL's Portland Pirates in the playoffs. He had 10 goals and 23 points in 47 AHL contests during the regular season. He also appeared in 15 games with the Panthers during the 2015-16 campaign and found the back of the net twice.

Florida has placed Greg McKegg on waivers.

Dmitry Kulikov suffered a sprained shoulder during the second period in Game 6 on Sunday night.

The injury would have kept him out for Game 7 if it was necessary, but the Panthers were eliminated by the Islanders that night. It's not believed to be serious though and he will use the off-season to recover.
Apr 26 - 1:37 PM

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

Florida GM Dale Tallon thinks that Jaromir Jagr will be back with the Panthers next year.

He believes a new deal can and will be worked out soon. Jagr led the team in scoring during the 2015-16 campaign with 66 points in 79 games. The 44-year-old winger hasn't shown any signs of slowing down, so it's not surprising that Florida wants to keep him in the fold.
Apr 26 - 12:59 PM

Teddy Purcell is open to staying with the Panthers.

He posted 11 points in 15 games with Florida after he was acquired from Edmonton and feels he fit in nicely with the team. If the Panthers decide they don't want him back or feel he is asking for too much then he will become an unrestricted free agent in July.
Apr 26 - 11:15 AM

Brian Campbell would like to be back with the Florida Panthers next season.

The soon-to-be 37-year-old defenseman had six goals and 31 points in 82 games with the Panthers in 2015-16. He also posted a personal best plus-31 rating, while averaging 22:16 of ice time per match. Campbell is eligible for unrestricted free agency, but he'll probably be back with Florida.
Apr 26 - 11:07 AM

Logan Shaw filled in for Nick Bjugstad on Florida's third line in Game 6 against the New York Islanders.

Bjugstad was hurt in the first overtime of Friday's 2-1 loss was listed as day-to-day. He'll have the summer to recover now that the Panthers have been eliminated. Shaw didn't have a point in three playoff appearances during the series.
Apr 25 - 9:44 AM

Jaromir Jagr extended his playoff goal drought to 37 games on Sunday night.

He earned two assists in the series and was in disbelief after the Panthers were knocked out by the Islanders in double overtime of Game 6. "It was close. I thought we got it, we were so close to score on the empty net," said Jagr, who led the team in scoring during the regular season. "Maybe this is what this team needs to move higher next year. Of course, I thought we had it in the bag, it's going to be Game 7 and it just [didn't happen]."
Apr 25 - 9:39 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped 49 of 51 shots in Sunday's 2-1 double overtime loss to the New York Islanders.

Luongo was solid for most of regulation, but he seemed to be wearing down as the game wore on. The Panthers held a 1-0 lead heading into the final minute of regulation, when Islanders captain John Tavares tied the game with 53 seconds remaining. Tavares also beat Luongo on a wraparound in double overtime. Luongo posted a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .934 save percentage in the 2016 postseason.
