Report: Panthers' Clemmensen has knee surgery
Florida Panthers goaltender Scott Clemmensen is sidelined indefinitely after having knee surgery during the weekend, according to a report in the Miami Herald.

Clemmensen was scheduled to start a preseason game Tuesday night against the Dallas Stars. According to the Panthers, Clemmensen needed to have a minor procedure at Doctors Hospital in Miami, the report says.

The 34-year-old was expected to fight with Jose Theodore for playing time in Florida. With no timetable yet for Clemmensen's recovery, that could still be the case. But if Clemmensen isn't ready to start the season, rookies Tyler Plante and Jacob Markstrom are the top candidates to back up Theodore.

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
