Goalie Chris Driedger got his first game-like experience at BB&T Center as he suited up for the Florida Panthers first scrimmage of 2021, suiting up for the White team.
From a statistical standpoint, it was not a pretty night.
Driedger, who is expected to be Sergei Bobrovsky’s primary backup when ever he returns to action, gave up eight goals in a 8-1 loss to the Red.
To simulate game-time conditions, the two sides played a full 4-on-4 overtime session and finished it with a shootout.
Driedger did, some may be interested, win that.
“We weren’t too worried about the results,” Driedger said.
