Analysis: Ekblad, who was injured in Florida's 4-1 win over the Stars on Sunday, may have a slim chance of returning should the Panthers make a very deep playoff run, but owners shouldn't count on it. The former No. 1 overall pick's loss is a major blow for the Panthers, as he's tied for the NHL lead among defensemen with 11 goals and leads Florida in time on ice.
