SUNRISE, Fla. -- The Florida Panthers, already without three forwards injured in their 2-1 victory against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday, also were without 2013 Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau when they face the Philadelphia Flyers at BB&T Center on Saturday.

Huberdeau was a late scratch because of illness.

Shorthanded up front because of the recent injuries sustained by Brandon Pirri, Sean Bergenheim and Aleksander Barkov, the Panthers will use defenseman Colby Robak at forward. This will be the first game of the season for Robak, who was a healthy scratch for each of Florida's first eight games.

Vincent Trocheck and Rocco Grimaldi also will be making their season debuts after being recalled from the San Antonio Rampage on Friday.
