Jameson Olive: Florida Panthers coach Paul Maurice on forward Anthony Duclair: “He’s on course. This is a long-term injury. I can’t tell you that we’re shooting for this day. It’s healing. We’ve got a great team of people and doctors here he’s working with.
Everybody seems happy, but they’re still not putting a start date on that. The first stage for us is when we can get him in a boot and when we can get him back out on the ice. Once that happens, we’ll have a better idea.”
Evason said “Hopefully we’ll have him sooner than later,” but didn’t know if he’ll be out longer than a week.
Scott Billeck: Jets coach Rick Bowness said that they aren’t considering surgery for Nikolaj Ehlers as an option just yet but added that everything is on the table. He also wouldn’t confirm if Ehlers is dealing with a groin injury.
