08:22 AM ET 11.27 | Erik Gudbranson's first on-ice workout since September took its toll Monday, when the 2010 No. 3 overall pick joined some of his Panthers teammates. Gudbranson's injury had been shrouded in secrecy as teammates declined to talk about it, saying "you need to speak with Erik." On Monday, Gudbranson finally came public about how he got hurt, telling The Miami Herald it happened while wakeboarding on a lake in Ontario with his buddies. "I wasn't being stupid; it was just an unfortunate, awkward fall," Gudbranson said. Gudbranson said he talked to general manager Dale Tallon about the injury, stressing to Tallon alcohol played no role in the accident. ... The accident, Gudbranson said, happened early in the morning on the first run of the day.

These things happen, even in practice, but either way, he's got plenty of time to rest up.

It doesn't matter because Bertuzzi has predicted it's a lost season anyways.
