It appears as though Alex Kovalev's time with the Florida Panthers is over.

According to reports out of Florida, the 40-year-old winger did not make the trip with the team to Carolina to play the Hurricanes on Saturday. Reports state the Panthers are looking at other options and that an announcement is pending.

Kovalev has two goals and five points in 14 games with Florida this year. He has been a healthy scratch for the team's other six games this season.

Prior to his time with the Panthers, Kovalev hadn't played in the NHL since the 2010-11 season when he had 16 goals and 34 points splitting the season between Ottawa and Pittsburgh.
