The injuries keep piling up for the Florida Panthers, as Sean Bergenehim left tonight’s game with a ‘lower-body’ injury.
Bergenheim had over 14-minutes of ice-time in the game, but played only two shifts in the third before leaving the game with the injury.
Official word on #FlaPanthers LW Sean Bergenheim is that he has lower-body injury. Hurt in 2nd period and hasn't returned

This is now three players that have been injured in the last two games for the Panthers, who play in-state rival Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.
Alexsander Barkov and Tomas Kopecky were the first set of injuries to occur, as they both were hurt during the Olympics – and their returns are unlikely for the rest of the season.
Erik Gudbranson and Jesse Winchester were the next set of players to be injured as they were both hurt against the Boston Bruins who they played earlier in the week.
Sean Bergenheim says he'll talk tomorrow but doesn't think 'it's anything serious. '

If Bergenehim can’t play against the Lightning, Bobby Butler (who I accidently said was the one player who was called up yesterday) could be an option for the Panthers from the team’s AHL affiliate.
