Another week, another season-ending injury for the Florida Panthers to contend with.
Panthers coach Kevin Dineen informed the media in Boston on Thursday that Kris Versteeg is going to undergo season-ending surgery on his knee. This comes a week after it was announced that Stephen Weiss was going to miss the rest of the season because of surgery on his wrist and Jose Theodore might be done with a groin issue.
Absolutely nothing is going right for the Panthers this season. Perhaps it's hockey karma catching up to them for their Southeast Division title last season.
It's been a brutally tough season for Versteeg. He began the year on the injured list that came from the lockout. He was able to return and not long after he was injured once again, this time on a check from Alex Ovechkin into the boards. That put him on the shelf for a couple of weeks.
