Panthers Buy Out Jovanovski

News: Ed Jovanovski has cleared waivers and will be bought out by the Panthers, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski has played in just 43 total games over the past two seasons, collecting a total of six points during that span. The 38-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent, but could very well elect retirement.

Panthers Buying Out Jovanovski

News: The Panthers placed Ed Jovanovski on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
Analysis: The hulking defenseman just turned 38 years old, and was carrying a cap hit of over $4 million per season. He'll become an unrestricted free agent after the buyout is complete, but he could opt for retirement as well.

Panthers' Jovanovski Likely To Sit Out Tuesday

News: Ed Jovanovski will likely sit out Tuesday's game against the Islanders, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The Panthers' captain does not play back-to-back games, given his recent injury history, so this development is nothing to fret about. Ed Jovanovski has only one goal and four assists to show for his 32 games this season. He's no longer a fantasy asset in most formats at this point in his career.

Ed Jovanovski, D, FLA Panthers' Jovanovski Showing Age

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Showing Age

News: Ed Jovanovski has one goal and three assists in 17 games this season.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner was injured for most of the season, but returned to the lineup in January. He didn't score in the last eight games before the Olympic break, and isn't expected to contribute much offensively when games resume.

Panthers' Jovanovski Scores First Of Season

News: Ed Jovanovski tallied his first goal since April 5, 2012, in Tuesday night's 4-3 win in Buffalo.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski turned back the clock Tuesday night, as he also added an assist and was plus-3 in the victory. Jovanovski will not be a strong fantasy asset going forward, but will see some occasional power-play time and has the potential to chip in points sporadically.

Panthers JovoCop: First Game In Over Nine Months

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) played his first game in more than nine months when he suited up for Saturday's game against the Predators. He was plus-3 in 15:54.
Analysis: He saw some time on the power play and penalty kill units, too. He's believed to be the first player of the four U.S. pro leagues to ever come back from hip-resurfacing surgery. Hip resurfacing is an alternative to replacement surgery and involves the placement of a metal cap over the head of the femur and a metal cup in the hip socket for the cap to move in. His return is nothing short of a miracle; fantasy production (if it comes) would be gravy.

Ed Jovanovski

Jovanovski Activated From IR

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) has been activated from IR, NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski -- who had hip surgery in April -- is now poised to make his season debut Saturday against Nashville. Jovanovski, who was limited to six games last season, isn't much of a fantasy factor these days, but he does provide valuable veteran leadership on the Panthers' blue line.

Ed Jovanovski, D, FLA

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Cleared To Play Saturday

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) has been cleared to make his season debut Saturday against the Predators, the Sun Sentinel's Harvey Fialkov reports.
Analysis: The Panthers will probably wait until after Friday's practice before confirming Ed Jovanovski's return from IR, but barring any late setbacks, it looks like he'll be active for the first time this season. He hasn't played in an NHL game since last March after undergoing season-ending surgery, requiring the entire summer and fall to recover.

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Out Through Early January

News: Ed Jovanovski will remain sidelined through early January, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Jovanovksi's status will continue to be a week-to-week process until he begins to make significant progress. The captain of the Panthers has been out of the lineup since March, and the team is in no rush to put him back in.

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Out Until After Christmas

News: Interim coach Pete Horachek said Ed Jovanovski (hip) would be out until after Christmas at the earliest, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski appeared to be making some progress after resuming skating within the last month, but it's evidently going to be a slow process for the veteran defenseman, who underwent hip surgery last April. Even when he gets back on the ice, don't expect the 37-year-old to get tons of ice time for a team with an eye on rebuilding.

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Not Joining Team On Trip

News: Ed Jovanovski will not accompany the Panthers on their five-game road trip beginning Friday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: With the road trip not concluding until Nov. 25, it seems unlikely that Ed Jovanovski will be activated from injured reserve until next month. He continues to make progress from his hip injury by skating during practices, but the Panthers haven't given any indication that he's particularly close to a return.

Ed Jovanovski, D, FLA

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski To Practice Thursday

News: Coach Kevin Dineen said Ed Jovanovski (hip) would practice Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The Panthers still believe Ed Jovanovski is a few weeks away from returning from hip surgery, but his impending return to practice seems promising. Jovanovski played just six games last season due to a combination of hip and knee issues.

Ed Jovanovski

Jovanvoski To Miss Panthers' Road Trip

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) is making progress toward a return, but will not play during the Panthers' current preseason road trip, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: That he is making progress at all, however, leaves open the possibility of a return for the Panthers' season opener against Dallas on October 3.

Panthers' Jovanovski Not Close To Game Action

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) was on the ice Thursday for the beginning of training camp, but is not close to game action, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Despite positive signs early in August about Ed Jovanovski's return for the regular season opener, head coach Kevin Dineen seemed pessimistic regarding his current status. The 37-year-old captain was limited to six games last season and there is no reason for the Panthers to rush his return for 2013-14.

Panthers' Jovanovski Doubtful For Start Of Training Camp

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) does not expect to be ready for the Sept. 11 start of training camp, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski claimed to be pain-free as early as late June, but now it's sounding like he could miss the beginning of the regular season. At 37 years old, it isn't entirely out of the question that the Panthers' captain could retire if his injury continues to linger.

Panthers' Jovanovski Skating Pain-Free; Still No Timetable

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) has been skating without pain but still does not have a timetable to return, the Miami Herald's George Richards reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski should have a chance to return for the start of training camp in September, and barring an unforeseen setback, he looks like a near-lock to be ready for the Panthers' regular season opener Oct. 3. He was reportedly pondering retirement after a hip injury ended his 2012-13 campaign in March, but the 37-year-old blueliner has come a long way in the past few months.

6/30/2013

Ed Jovanovski, D, FLA

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanoski Finally Pain Free

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) is pain free and expected to begin skating this week, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski is clearly making progress in his recovery from April hip surgery and has a chance to be ready for the start of training camp in September. The 37-year-old blueliner should have a significant role for the lowly Panthers if he's healthy.

Panthers' Jovanovski (Hip) Not Interested In Early Retirement

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) isn't interested in early retirement and plans on returning next season, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. "My mind-set is work hard in the summer, get my hip strong, but it's too early to say how it's going to respond," he said. "I'm a driven individual and for me playing again is what I want to do and what I'm going to do.'
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski, who is currently recovering from hip surgery, is under contract for two more years. He only played in six games this season due to the hip injury.

Panthers' Jovanovski (Hip) Without Clear Timetable

News: Ed Jovanovski (hip) has no timetable for a return after undergoing surgery April 5, the Miami Herald reports. "I'm feeling great, going through therapy and am doing everything to make it stronger," Jovanovski said. "It's responding well. So far, so good."
Analysis: With two games to play in the regular season, it's needless to say that Ed Jovanovski will be sidelined for both contests. The 36-year-old will set his sights on a training camp return.

Panthers' Jovanovski (Hip) Ruled Out For Season

News: Ed Jovanovski will undergo hip surgery and miss the rest of the season.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski was previously slowed by a knee injury and has been limited to just six games all season. With Jovanovski now out of the picture, the defensive work of the Panthers figures to remain shoddy, as the team has given up a league-leading 119 goals with Jovanovski out of the picture for most of the season.

3/18/2013

Ed Jovanovski, D, FLA

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Out Indefinitely

News: Ed Jovanovski (lower body) is out indefinitely, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. "Eddie is going to be out indefinitely," coach Kevin Dineen said Monday. "He's had a recurring lower-body injury that he's worked extremely hard to get healthy, and he's not there yet."
Analysis: Regardless of what's ailing the veteran blueliner, he's off the fantasy radar these days. In six games for the Panthers this season, he has just one assist.

Panthers' Jovanovski Returns; Injured Again

News: Ed Jovanovski returned to action Saturday after sitting out 22 games with a lower-body injury only to leave the game after the second period, reports the Associated Press. He did not return.
Analysis: Panthers' coach Kevin Dineen told reporters in the post-game scrum that Jovo Cop's condition will updated Monday.

Panthers' Jovanovski Returning Saturday

News: Ed Jovanovski (knee) will return to the lineup Saturday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: No word yet regarding a corresponding move, but Ed Jovanovski owners in need of his services can plan on his return accordingly.

Ed Jovanovski

Panthers' Jovanovski Partakes In Optional Skate

News: Ed Jovanovski (knee) took to the ice for the first time in weeks Saturday during an optional skate, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Ed Jovanovski may be back on the ice but there is still no timetable for when he'll be game-ready. Estimates on his return have been unreliable all season, but it's good a sign the Florida captain is back on the ice.

Panthers' Jovanovski (Knee) To Miss Next 10-14 Days

News: Ed Jovanovski (knee) will miss the next 10-to-14 days, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Analysis: The knee injury has limited Ed Jovanovski to just five games this season. He's had his return repeatedly delayed for weeks already, so this latest timetable may not be especially reliable either.
