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.
Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
