Panthers forward Vincent Trocheck stretchered off of the ice after suffering a gruesome leg injury. He ended up getting bent backwards as his leg was stuck underneath him.
Trocheck will likely miss significant time as Florida’s slow start suffers another setback.

Frightful game tonight for #FLAPanthers in Ottawa, as budding star Vincent Trocheck had to be taken off on a stretcher (Lower Body Injury) and a fan suffered cardiac arrest. According to @CTVOttawa the 83-year old man was unresponsive upon arriving at hospital. pic.twitter.com/KCcgZeQSgj

Florida managed to win the game 7-5 despite losing Trocheck. But the Panthers have a long way to go if they want to climb out of the Eastern Conference’s basement.
