Florida Panthers center Tomas Kopecky is expected to face his former team on Thursday. Signed to a four-year deal in June, Kopecky suffered an apparent charley horse on Monday. He was able to practice on Wednesday without incident. Kopecky collected 15 goals and 27 assists - both career highs - in 81 games last season with the Blackhawks. He won two Stanley Cups, with the Blackhawks in 2010 and Detroit Red Wings in 2008. This season, Kopecky recorded one goal and five assists in 11 games.
