Report: Panthers' Jose Theodore could be out for season with torn groin

Florida Panthers goaltender Jose Theodore has a torn groin and could miss the remainder of the 2013 NHL season, RDS' Renaud Lavoie reported on Sunday.

Theodore was injured just more than two minutes into Saturday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes when he kicked out his right pad to stop Jussi Jokinen on a 2-on-1 rush. If he needs surgery on the injury, he'll likely have to miss the rest of the season.

Theodore, a veteran of more than 16 NHL seasons, was only 4-6-3 in 15 games with the Panthers this season. His 3.29 goals against average was his worst mark in that area since the 2005-06 season with the Montreal Canadiens, and he had an .893 save percentage.

The Panthers called up 23-year-old top prospect Jacob Markstrom to replace Theodore. The Panthers' current backup is Scott Clemmensen, who is only 2-2-2 with a 4.31 GAA and .857 save percentage.

If the Panthers' goaltenders continue to struggle, it could reignite trade rumors involving Vancouver's Roberto Luongo. The Panthers sit tied for last place in the Eastern Conference, though they're only six points behind the eighth-place Philadelphia Flyers.
