Report: Panthers send Markstrom back to AHL

The Florida Panthers have returned goaltender Jacob Markstrom to their American Hockey League affiliate in San Antonio, according to reports.

Markstrom was recalled last week and started consecutive games for the Panthers. He lost to both the Penguins and Bruins, but stopped 65 of 71 shots, a .915 save percentage.

A second-round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, the 23-year-old Markstrom is 2-7-1 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .919 save percentage in 10 career appearances for Florida.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
