Bolland (upper body) wasn't present for the Panthers' morning skate Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

The Panthers were listing Bolland as day-to-day as recently as Sunday, but the fact that he hasn't resumed skating with the team suggests he's not as close to a return as his designation would imply. Bolland will miss a third straight game Thursday against the Blackhawks and looks likely to miss more action beyond that.

Bolland finally potted his first goal as a Panther on Tuesday, but it came in an 8-2 loss to Winnipeg.

It took him 20 games to get that first one, but the monkey's finally off his back. Of course, scoring isn't really Bolland's game, as his game is that of a third-line grinder, even if he's playing a bigger role than that for Florida right now.

Bolland gathered two assists and finished with a plus-3 rating in Friday's triumph over the Flames.

It's the first multi-point game of the season for Bolland, who is still in search of his first goal after 18 games. He saw an increased role Friday with Aleksander Barkov (illness) unavailable, but don't expect it to spark much meaningful production.

Bolland picked up an assist while skating 14:57 in Sunday's loss to the Capitals.

A long-term groin injury has made the Panthers' puzzling decision to give Bolland a five-year contract this summer even more disastrous than initially thought, but at least the veteran center is finally healthy. That hasn't allowed Bolland to be much more than depth center for the Cats, who have settled on Nick Bjugstad and Aleksander Barkov as their top two pivots. While being relegated to a third-line role, Bolland has no goals and five assists in 16 games.
