Dave Bolland C FLA 7 Days

Bolland (lower body) will not return to action Saturday against the Coyotes, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

With Bolland again failing to take part in Friday's practice, the Panthers felt comfortable ruling him out as an option for Saturday. After the game against the Coyotes, the Panthers won't play again until Oct. 30, affording Bolland some needed recovery time. If Bolland fails to return to health by that point, the Panthers could choose to place him on injured reserve.

Bolland (lower body) hasn't resumed skating yet, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The Panthers are hoping to have Bolland back in time for Saturday's tilt with the Coyotes, but that doesn't seem promising at this juncture. Bolland hadn't been producing much prior to suffering the injury, going scoreless and attempting only three shots in four games.

Bolland (lower body) won't play Monday against the Avalanche, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.

It didn't take long for the health-averse Bolland to fall victim to his first injury of the season, as he'll sit out for the second straight game. Brandon Pirri fills in for him as the Panthers' third-line center once again.

Bolland (lower body) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Capitals, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

As anticipated, Bolland wasn't able to recover in time from the injury suffered Friday night to suit up for the second game of the Panthers' back-to-back. Brandon Pirri will step in as the third-line center, with Bolland's status for Tuesday's game against the Avalanche in question.

Bolland left Friday's game with a lower-body injury, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

The indication is that Bolland isn't expected to play Saturday either, with Brandon Pirri in line to play in his place. He is listed as day-to-day for now, but the team should update his status in the future.

Bolland (illness) will play in Thursday's game against the Lightning, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.

Bolland was held out of last weekend's preseason finale due a bout with the flu, but he returned to practice a few days ago and is apparently fit to play. He'll center the third line in his Panthers debut, with Sean Bergenheim and Tomas Fleischmann flanking him on either side.

Bolland has the flu and was scratched from Saturday's preseason finale against the Lightning, the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov reports.

Bolland missed Thursday's preseason game with the illness as well, but with a few days of rest, he'll likely be available for the Oct. 9 regular-season opener against Tampa Bay.

Bolland (ankle) is expected to center the Panthers' third line this season, Harvey Fialkow of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The five-year, $27.5 million contract the Panthers gave Bolland in the offseason seems like a steep overpay for a third-liner, especially for a player coming off a significant ankle injury. The Panthers have more talent on the wing than most believe, but the move from Toronto to South Florida likely won't dramatically jumpstart his production. That being said, he has shown the capability of producing around 40 points in the past, so a decent buy-low window could exist for him late in deep-league drafts.

Contract talks between Dave Bolland and the Leafs appear to be at a standstill.

"Our position hasn't changed a whole heck of a lot," said Bolland's agent Anton. "At this time it's just not coming together. We can't force the Leafs to accept our terms." He earned $3.375 million last season and it's believed he's seeking a deal worth $5 million per year.

Dave Bolland is still trying to get his ankle and leg back to 100 percent.

"I'm still working on it," he said. "It's getting my strength back in my thigh and my calf. I lost a lot of leg strength in my calf and thigh. It was all gone and I don't have that strength to take care of that ankle. Now, the ankle is fine, it's great. When the end of summer rolls around, I'll be 100 percent." He suited up in just 23 games last season after a tendon in his ankle was severed by a skate. Bolland, who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, reiterated that his preference is to re-sign with Toronto and he wants to be with the Leafs until his career is done.
