Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour (shoulder) won't be available at the start of the season, according to general manager Bill Zito. The 29-year-old had shoulder surgery in the offseason, and Zito expects to have him back anytime between November and January. Montour was a monster for the Panthers last season with a career-high 73 points (16 goals, 57 assists) in 80 games, and his presence will definitely missed. However, it will give others opportunities to shine. With Aaron Ekblad (shoulder) also unavailable for the start of the campaign, Gustav Forsling looks set to be the leader on the blue line for the Panthers, while new signing Oliver Ekman-Larsson figures to feature heavily in all situations straight away as well.
Florida Panthers defensemen Aaron Ekblad (shoulder) and Brandon Montour (shoulder) are on schedule in their recovery, according to Panthers general manager Bill Zito. "The intel I'm getting back is that they're on time," Zito said on the Sirius XM NHL Power Play show. Both players underwent surgery in the offseason to fix shoulder issues. Zito added that they are one or two months away from returning to the lineup. Florida kicks off the 2023-24 campaign on Oct. 12, so it's possible both Ekblad and Montour will be in the lineup on opening night. The two are the leaders of the Panthers blue line and soak up heavy minutes night in, night out. Ekblad will hope to produce a bounce-back season in 2023-24 after posting only 38 points last term, while Montour has set himself a high bar following a spectacular 73-point year in 80 games.
Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour opened the scoring with his seventh goal of the playoffs in Thursday's 3-2 overtime victory in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. Montour gave the Panthers an early first period lead in an important situation with the team returning home after a pair of road losses in Vegas. Montour has been excellent for the Panthers and he is tied for second on the team with seven goals throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, with forwards Carter Verhaeghe and Sam Reinhart each scoring seven goals through 19 games.
Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour scored his sixth goal of the Stanley Cup playoffs in Tuesday's 4-2 victory against the Maple Leafs in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference second-round series. Montour's goal extended the Panthers lead in the second half of the third period as he found the back of the net on a delayed penalty call, giving the team a road win to begin the series. The 29-year-old defenseman was one of the most productive players on the team in their first-round series victory with eight points through seven games, and he is off to a great start in the second round after a career-best 73 points in the regular season.
