  • Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Ready for training camp

    Tkachuk was forced to sit out Florida's season-ending loss to Vegas in the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of a broken sternum.

  • Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Recovering from broken sternum

    Panthers coach Paul Maurice said Tuesday that Tkachuk suffered a broken sternum in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Tkachuk tried to work through the injury, but the wear and tear from Game 4 ultimately kept him out of the lineup for Tuesday's season-ending loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5. It's unclear if he will be fully healed from the injury in time for training camp in September. Tkachuk finished the playoffs with 24 points in 20 contests and tied for third in postseason scoring among all players.

  • Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Not expected to play Tuesday

    Tkachuk (upper body) is not expected to play in Tuesday's Game 5 versus the Golden Knights, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Tkachuk essentially came down to a game-time decision, but it's likely to be Grigori Denisenko in the lineup instead. Anton Lundell figures to receive the largest bump in playing time with Tkachuk out. With the Panthers facing elimination Tuesday, there's no guarantee there will be a Game 6 on Friday, though Tkachuk will likely be questionable for that one if the Panthers can extend the series.

  • Panthers' Matthew Tkachuk: Questionable for Game 5

    Tkachuk would not commit to being available for Tuesday's Game 5 after he was on the bench nursing an injury for part of the third period of Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 4, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Tkachuk also only lightly participated in warmups, taking just a few shots. The injury likely stems from a heavy hit that he took from Keegan Kolesar in Game 3, though Tkachuk was able to play a big role in the Panthers' comeback in that contest. The Panthers are likely to be very guarded with information about Tkachuk's injury, so he can be considered a game-time decision for Game 5.

    Tkachuk had a goal and 22 PIM in a 7-2 loss to Vegas in Game 2 on Monday.

    Tkachuk received a roughing penalty and a 10-minute misconduct late in the second period. After serving his time, he scored midway through the third frame, though it merely narrowed Vegas' lead to 6-2. Still, the tally brought the 25-year-old up to an impressive 10 goals and 22 points in 18 postseason outings this year.
