Nottingham Panthers without Eric Werner for two months

Nottingham Panthers

Nottingham Panthers are expected to be without Eric Werner for two months after the defenceman broke his leg just two weekends into the new season.

Panthers recovered from Friday's shock 5-2 loss to early-season Elite League leaders Dundee Stars to beat Fife 5-4 after penalty shots on Saturday.

But the win over the Flyers came at a cost with Werner breaking his leg when he was hit just below the shinpad.

Panthers are already looking at bringing in cover.

Nottingham also beat Edinburgh Capitals 4-2 at the weekend to sit second in the Elite League table.
