Florida Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad is expected to miss the next two games with an upper-body injury, according to the Florida Sun Sentinel.
The nature of the injury was not specified, but Panthers coach Gerard Gallant told the Sun Sentinel it isn't a back injury. Bjugstad had back surgery in March that ended his 2014-15 season.
Bjugstad wasn't in the lineup for a 3-1 win against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday. He has seven goals and 12 points in 23 games this season.
