04:51 PM ET 03.14 | Florida Panthers forward Kris Versteeg will miss the remainder of the 2013 season because he will require season ending surgery on his knee, according to an announcement by the team on Thursday. Versteeg sustained a knee injury on Tuesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Upon being hit, Versteeg hit the ice in pain and looked devastated by the play. It proved to be the end of his season. This marks another key injury to the Panthers as Stephen Weiss also will miss the remainder of the year due to injury. Ultimately, it???s been a rough year for the Panthers.

Who the hell is George Richards and how hard is it to get a photo of Verstegg. (Stanley Cup spelling!)

Ultimately ... it's also a great opportunity for others to step up and establish themselves as NHL caliber players. To show what they're made of.

I wouldn't worry about it Kris, your teams season was over shortly after the lockout was settled!

It looks like last season was an anomaly.

I wonder how long it's been since we've had a day's worth of threads without news of an injury.......upper body, lower body, concussion.................it's really been a downer for some time now.

You on IR or expected back for tomorrow's threads? Who is treating you? Not somebody on the Pen's staff I hope.
