    Ekblad back on the ice for Panthers after World Cup injury

    The Florida Panthers had a bit of a scare during the 2016 World Cup when defenseman Aaron Ekblad, while playing for Team North America, was injured in a first-round game against Finland that kept him out for the remainder of the tournament.

And it doesn’t sound like Lazar will be back anytime soon. “We’re going to be really cautious,” Sens head coach Guy Boucher said, per the Sun. Lazar, the 17th overall pick in 2013, scored six goals and 20 points in 76 games last year, all career highs. He averaged just under 14 minutes per night, and was one of the club’s more active faceoff men. This is a pretty tough development for the 21-year-old. Mono is difficult to return from, and can sideline players for a significant length of time — two seasons ago, Los Angeles’ Tyler Toffoli missed three weeks (six
