Florida Panthers' Scottie Upshall May Miss A Month With Ankle Injury

Cats forward's tough luck continues as he finds himself back on the shelf for an extended period of time.

It is being reported on the interweb and on twitter by beat writer George Richards of the Miami Herald that Florida Panthers forward Scottie Upshall will miss up to a month with an undisclosed ankle injury.

Upshall, who has notched one goal in seven games, was injured tussling with former Panther prospect James Wright during the third period of last night's 6-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

This is another setback for Upshall personally; he missed 56 games last season, and the club has been riddled with injuries since the beginning of the campaign.

The Panthers begin a four-game road trip beginning in Buffalo Sunday afternoon.
