Last February, Sergei Bobrovsky played in his 500th NHL game. He later got hurt, and then Covid-19 shut down the season. On Saturday night, the Panthers will salute the milestone before their game against the Blue Jackets.
Bobrovsky, of course, played most of those 500 games with Columbus.
In seven seasons, he played 374 games with the Blue Jackets leading them to the playoffs four times and winning the Vezina Trophy twice.
The Panthers have been waiting for the right time to honor Bobrovsky and, Columbus’ first visit of the season seems just about perfect.
