      Barkov (illness) is not on the ice for warmups and is expected to miss Tuesday's game against the Sharks.

      Barkov was a surprise scratch from Tuesday's lineup with the team not announcing his absence prior to warmups. The team alluded to an illness going around the room that could affect the availability of some players, but there was no indication that Barkov was in any danger of missing tonight's game. Anton Lundell will move up the lineup and skate alongside Evan Rodrigues and Sam Reinhart at 5v5, while Carter Verhaeghe is likely to take the vacant spot on Florida's top power-play unit.

      Barkov (illness) did not travel as the Panthers began their west coast road trip.

      Barkov continues to battle an illness and will not start the trip with the team but could join the team when he's feeling better, according to head coach Paul Maurice. With Barkov out, the Panthers recalled Aleksi Heponiemi from the AHL, and Sam Bennett will centre the top line.
