Upshall A Healthy Scratch, Bergenheim To Make Season Debut
The decision to drop Upshall paves the way for Sean Bergenheim ? who hasn?t played for the Panthers since Apr. 2012 ? to make his season debut.
But back to Upshall for a moment.
The 30-year-old winger, in the third year of a four-year, $14 million deal, finds himself mired in Kevin Dineen?s doghouse. The oft-injured Upshall has just one assist through nine games this year, posting a minus-5 rating while averaging just 12:27 per game.
