The Florida Panthers are already experiencing issues. Could Denis Malgin be added to the list?
He was able to leave the ice under his own power after a scary-looking boarding hit by New Jersey Devils forward Pavel Zacha on Monday. You can see the hit, which drew a major penalty, in the video above.
Zacha doesn’t have a suspension history in his young career, for whatever that’s worth.
The Panthers just announced that Malgin won’t return because of an upper-body injury.
