Panthers goalie Clemmensen out three weeks
Panthers general manager Dale Tallon told reporters Sunday that goalie Scott Clemmensen will miss three weeks after undergoing a "minor knee procedure."

The Florida Panthers will open training camp later this week without their backup goaltender.

Panthers general manager Dale Tallon told reporters Sunday that goalie Scott Clemmensen will miss three weeks after undergoing a minor knee procedure.

Clemmensen, 36, appeared in 19 games for the Panthers last season. He went 3-7-2 with a 3.67 goals-against average and .874 save percentage.

Jacob Markstrom, the Panthers' second-round pick (No. 31) at the 2008 NHL Draft, is set to become Florida's starting goaltender after the team declined to re-sign veteran Jose Theodore.

With Clemmensen out, Michael Houser could see increased playing time during the preseason. The undrafted 20-year-old spent last season with the Cincinnati Cyclones in the ECHL.

Quote of the Day

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.

— Islanders captain John Tavares
