?The Florida Panthers regular season hasn't even started, and yet the team has already suffered another major injury to their lineup. Last week, forward Nick Bjugstad broke his hand and will now be out for the next 3-4 weeks and while that's not too long of an absence, the newest Panther to land on the shelf, will be out much longer. 

Johnathan Huberdeau was injured last night during the Panthers preseason game after taking a skate to the ankle, and now the team has announced that Huberdeau will be out 3-4 months with a lower-leg injury suffered from taking that skate to the ankle. 

This is certainly not what Panthers fans want to hear, as their team aims to make the playoffs for the second straight season and hope for a bigger playoff run this year.
