FLORIDA REPORTEDLY DONE WITH KEITH YANDLE; WILL BE HEALTHY SCRATCH

The Florida Panthers have had their fill of Keith Yandle. That's according to Frank Seravalli on the latest edition of TSN's Insider Trading.

"Keith Yandle has fallen out of favor with the Florida Panthers. They've let it be known to him that he does not factor into their plans for this season," Seravalli said.

"The plan at this point is to make Keith Yandle a healthy scratch at some point."

Seravalli went on to say that Yandle's full no-movement clause means he can't be put on waivers, which means he can't be sent to Florida's taxi squad.



Yandle has three years remaining on his contract at $6.35 million annually. The 34-year-old defenceman registered 45 points in 69 games with the Panthers last season. He has suited up in 866 consecutive NHL games, which means he has the longest active iron man streak in the league right now. It's unfortunate it has to end with him being a healthy scratch. Yandle does contribute offensively, but his defensive skills are mess than mediocre.

Florida's first games were supposed to be against the Dallas Stars on January 14th and 15th. However, due to the Stars' positive COVID-19 tests those games have been pushed back.
