Florida defenseman Ed Jovanovski will miss another two weeks of action with a troublesome knee injury, Panthers head coach Kevin Dineen told the Miami Herald.

Jovanovski, 36, skated with the Cats during Friday’s practice, a positive development given he’s been out of action since taking a knee from Tampa Bay’s BJ Crombeen on Jan. 29.

The injury has kept him out of the last seven games. If he misses another two full weeks, that games-missed total could get up to 14.

Jovanovski was given Florida’s captaincy prior to the start of the season and has played a key role on the Panthers’ defense, averaging 16:39 of ice time per night.

In five games this season, Jovanovski has one assist and a minus-2 rating. He has two years remaining on the four-year, $16 million deal he signed with the Panthers in 2011.
