Panthers Captain Ed Jovanovski Activated From Injured Reserve

SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive Vice President/General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that team captain D Ed Jovanovski has been activated from injured reserve and is expected to make his season debut on Saturday night when Florida hosts the Nashville Predators at 7 p.m at the BB&T Center. 
 


“We are thrilled to have our captain back in the line-up,” said Tallon. “Ed worked extremely hard during his extensive rehabilitation process and should be commended for his diligent efforts both on and off the ice. He is a true professional in every sense, who adds leadership, character and a veteran presence to our locker room.” 
 


Jovanovski, 36, was originally drafted by the Florida Panthers first overall in the 1994 National Hockey League Draft. He sits third among Panthers defensemen with 580 PIM, fifth with 325 games played and seventh with 97 points (32-65-97). The Windsor, Ontario native has also played in 76 postseason contests helping the Panthers reach the Stanley Cup Finals in 1996. 
 


“I am very excited to get back on the ice with my teammates on Saturday night,” said Jovanovski. “I cannot thank our doctors and training staff enough for the countless hours they spent helping me rehab from my injury. I look forward to seeing all the Panthers fans at the BB&T Center tomorrow night.” 



For his career in the NHL, the 17-year veteran has played in 1,091 games for Florida (1995-1999 & 2011-current), Vancouver (1999-2006) and Phoenix (2006-2011) scoring 136 goals with 359 assists and 1,452 PIM. Florida signed Jovanovski to a four-year contract on July 1, 2011.
