With Aaron Ekblad out for the season after having surgery Monday, the Panthers need someone to fill his spot and, at least right now, Gus Forsling will get his shot.

Florida plays host to Detroit on Tuesday night and at morning skate, Forsling was with MacKenzie Weegar on the Panthers’ top pair.

This is a terrific opportunity for anyone, but especially for someone who was waived by Carolina during training camp.
