      Sam Bennett (lower body) will be out week-to-week.

      Bennett saw his first action of the season on Monday after returning from an injury (lower-body) but played only 7:54 before being forced to leave the game with another lower-body injury. This injury isn't believed to be related to the previous one that kept him out of action but is still cause for concern as he has a week-to-week timeline for his next potential return. Bennett had 16 goals, 24 assists, 193 SOG, 54 PIMs and, a +5 plus/minus in 63 games played in 2022-23.

      Bennett (lower-body) is on the ice for warmups and is expected to play in Boston on Monday.

      Sam Bennett (lower-body) will not play Saturday but is nearing a return.

      Bennett has yet to play this season but appears to be nearing a return as he will travel with the team on their upcoming road trip. Last season, he registered 40 points (16G / 24A) in 63 games and should provide an offensive spark for a Panthers team that is off to a 3-3-0 start.

      Sam Bennett (lower body) will be a game-time decision Saturday vs. Seattle.

      Bennett joined the Panthers' practice for the first time since injuring himself in the preseason with a lower-body injury and will be a game-time decision Saturday vs. Seattle. The 27-year-old's missing presence has created a hole in the Panthers' lineup after he put up 16 goals, 40 points, 193 SOG, 54 PIMs and a +5 plus/minus in 63 games played in 2022-23. He is expected to skate at practice again Friday and head coach Paul Maurice said they should know his status from there.

      Sam Bennett (lower body) will miss the Panthers' season opener and did not travel with the team.

      Bennett will not be ready for the Panthers' opening game of the season as he did not travel with the team as he recovers from a lower-body injury. Last season, Bennett scored 40 points (16G / 24A) in 63 games for the Panthers while predominantly playing in a second-line role. Eetu Luostarinen, who recorded 43 points (17G / 26A) in 82 games last season, is expected to handle some extra responsibility on the second line and second powerplay unit during Bennett's absence.

      Bennett (lower-body) is doubtful for the Panthers' season opener and will likely miss "a couple weeks."

      Bennett has two goals, an assist, 15 SOG, 14 PIMs and a +1 plus/minus through three games so far in the playoff but will play in Game 5 Wednesday after missing Tuesday's team skate.
