Florida defenseman Tom Gilbert will miss the remainder of this season to undergo surgery on a sports hernia, the Miami Herald reports.

Gilbert, 31, had a solid campaign in Florida this year, his first since being bought out of his six-year, $24 million contract by Minnesota in the summer. The 31-year-old had appeared in all 73 Panthers games prior to getting shut down, scoring three goals and 28 points while averaging 21:20 TOI per game.
