Florida Panthers Recent Acquisition "Out Until At Least November"

Jonah Gadjovich, who was signed by the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, unfortunately missed his first game with his new team against the New Jersey Devils due to an upper-body injury.

Now, Jameson Olive, reporting for the Panthers' official website, indicates that Gadjovich's return to the lineup is unlikely until November.

It's been suggested that he may be placed on long-term injured reserve, drawing parallels with Aaron Ekblad, who is recovering from a shoulder injury.

If this scenario unfolds, Gadjovich wouldn't be eligible to make a comeback until around mid-November, in line with Coach Paul Maurice's earlier statements regarding his expected return.

The 25-year-old Gadjovich is entering his fourth NHL season, having amassed four goals and 10 total points across 79 games played, along with 148 penalty minutes, split between the Vancouver Canucks and San Jose Sharks.
