Florida Panthers goaltender James Reimer is expected to miss at least two weeks with a groin injury, Panthers head coach Bob Boughner announced on Thursday.

“(Reimer) pulled his groin the other night,” Boughner said. “Had an MRI yesterday. He’s going to be out probably a couple of weeks at least.”

Reimer started 17 consecutive games and 18 of 19 games after Roberto Luongo sustained a lower-body injury in December.

“We’re facing some adversity as an organization,” Boughner said of the injuries (h/t NHL.com).

“There’s only two ways to go: obviously feel sorry for yourself or the other way. You’ve got to find a way to come together as a team and manage our game in order for us to get a couple of points.”

Panthers’ goaltender Harri Sateri is expected to make his second NHL start against the Washington Capitals on Thursday.

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed head coach John Tortorella to a two-year contract extension that will keep in with the team through the 2020-21 season, the team announced on Wednesday.

It makes sense for Columbus, who has experienced it’s most success under Tortorella’s watch, highlighted by a a franchise-best 50 wins and 108 point season in 2016-2017 that saw Tortorella walk away with that season’s Jack Adams Trophy as the league’s best coach.

“Our team has been one of the winningest in the NHL over the past two seasons and John Tortorella has played a critical role in that success and in raising the level of our team’s play since his arrival,” Blue Jackets’ general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. “His passion and commitment to being the best has permeated our team and we believe will lead to even greater success in the future.”
