In 2019, the Florida Panthers swapped goalies with Carolina — sending James Reimer to the Hurricanes for Scott Darling.
Darling’s time with the Panthers was ever so brief although his name will be on their books for the next couple of years.
Florida made the trade in order to buy out Darling’s contract the day before signing Sergei Bobrovsky.
Although Darling obviously never played in a game for the Panthers, the possibility still exists that could, indeed, happen this coming season.
Darling is currently in South Florida working on the ice with the rest of the Panthers in town for informal workouts.
He will be in town at least a little longer.
