San Antonio's Robak rewarded, will play first NHL game Sunday

The Panthers have called up second-year pro prospect Colby Robak to replace defensive stalwart Jason Garrison for Sunday's 3 p.m. road match against the New York Islanders. Garrison left Saturday's eventual 3-1 Florida victory over New Jersey with has been deemed by the club to be a lower-body injury. Whatever that means.

Robak, a recent AHL All-Star at 21, is a second-round selection (46th overall) of the Panthers in 2008. He currently shares the points lead among Rampage blueliners - with newly-acquired Sean Sullivan - at 25 (7G/18A) in 48 games. A year ago - his first outside of the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings - the 6-3 defenseman collected 24 points (7G) in 76 games for then-Florida AHL affiliate Rochester.
