Defense - FLA
GOALS: 0 | ASST: 1 | PTS: 1

According to the Miami Herald, Florida Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said defenseman Ed Jovanovski will miss at least two more weeks with a knee injury.

Jovanovski skated prior to the team's practice Friday.

The captain and veteran blueliner has missed the past seven games. He hasn't played since early in the third period of a game against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Jan. 29.

In five games this season, Jovanovski has one assist and a minus-2 rating.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
