Florida center ruled out Thursday; Barkov, Gudbranson to return @NHL

Florida Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau will not play against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday (7:30 p.m. ET; FS-A PLUS, FS-F, NHL.TV) because of an apparent concussion, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Coach Gerard Gallant ruled out Huberdeau, who is listed as day-to-day.

Huberdeau sustained the injury when he was hit by Winnipeg Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba on Saturday. He crashed into the boards early in the first period and did not return.

Huberdeau, 22, has 11 goals and 40 points in 59 games this season.

Forward Alexander Barkov and defenseman Erik Gudbranson, who missed six and eight games, respectively, with upper-body injuries, will play Thursday.
