Florida Panthers blueliner Bryan Allen to have knee surgery

SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida defenceman Bryan Allen is set to have surgery on his left knee Monday and will be out indefinitely.

Allen, one of the Panthers' three alternate captains, has been out since playing in the Panthers' first two games of the season. He underwent surgery on the knee in the summer and sat out all but the last of Florida's pre-season games.

The Panthers are still without defenceman Bryan McCabe, who has been out since the season opener Oct. 10 because of a back injury. Panthers general manager Jacques Martin said McCabe is making progress and the team is hoping he can begin practising next week.

Martin also said the Panthers have had discussions with veteran defenceman Jassen Cullimore, who played with the team last season but wasn't re-signed.
