Florida Panthers forward Vincent Trocheck is undergoing surgery Tuesday to repair “significant damage” to his leg and will be on the shelf for the long-term, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.
Trocheck was stretchered off the ice during Monday’s game against the Ottawa Senators when his right leg bent awkwardly while he was battling for a loose puck near the boards. You can see the video below, but it includes graphic content:
