The Florida Panthers are playing the Atlanta Thrashers tonight without their captain Bryan McCabe, something they better get used to. That’s because McCabe is expected to miss four to six weeks after undergoing surgery on facial fractures Sunday.

McCabe’s been an asset for Florida since he joined the team in the 2008-09 season. He has five goals and 16 assists for 21 points in 43 games this season.

We’ll let you know if anything changes – whether he comes back sooner or later than expected – when word surfaces.
