The Florida Panthers will be without perhaps their best player Saturday night as Sasha Barkov will not play against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The Panthers did not disclose Barkov’s injury nor did coach Andrew Brunette mention in his pregame that he would be out.

Barkov did not appear on the ice for warmups and the team said it was due to a lower body injury.

No other information is available.

The Panthers are already a pretty banged-up bunch with Sam Bennett the latest to join a growing inactive list. Also on there: Noel Acciari, Olli Juolevi, Joe Thornton and Markus Nutivaara.

Florida is also without Sergei Bobrovsky as the goalie is out with an undisclosed upper-body injury.
