Sam Bennett News
Florida Panthers center Sam Bennett (undisclosed) will be out for a fifth straight game Wednesday versus Toronto. The 26-year-old has been bitten badly by the injury bug late in the season, missing 10 of the team's last 17 games in total. He's contributed 40 points in 63 games in a second-line role, handing out 150 hits as well. Anton Lundell will continue to center the second line Wednesday. He's joined by Florida's two best scorers in Matthew Tkachuk and Carter Verhaeghe, but Lundell himself is in the middle of a miserable 12-game scoring drought.
Florida Panthers center Sam Bennett sustained an undisclosed injury and couldn't complete the game Monday versus Detroit. He had a great outing with two assists but could only log 12:44 of ice time due to the injury. The team is set to re-evaluate Bennett on Tuesday. Bennett has sadly been hit by a number of injuries during the latter half of the season, and he has been limited to 63 appearances for the season, recording 16 goals and 24 assists. Anton Lundell will likely move into the top six again if Bennett can't play in Tuesday's matchup against Philadelphia.
Florida Panthers centers Aleksander Barkov (hand) and Sam Bennett (lower body) will rejoin the lineup for Saturday's big clash with the Penguins. The Panthers captain has been unavailable for the last three games, while Bennett has missed six straight contests. Eetu Luostarinen has been greatly benefiting from the duo's absence and is set for an even bigger role Saturday, with head coach Paul Maurice having decided to move him to the left wing on the first line. Anton Lundell, who centered the top line in Barkov's absence, drops down to the third. Bennett will take up his normal position as the second-line center.
Florida Panthers centers Aleksander Barkov (hand) and Sam Bennett (lower body) won't play Tuesday against Tampa Bay. Barkov will be out for a second consecutive game, while Bennett's absence will stretch to five games. The two will get their next chance to return Thursday in a matchup against Nashville. Anton Lundell and Eetu Luostarinen will continue to center the top two lines Tuesday. From a fantasy perspective, the latter has done better in his new role, averaging a point per game in four matches on the second line since Bennett got sidelined.
