San Antonio Rampage - AHL
- The Rampage sit 13th in the Western Conference with 55 points (25-25-5). They defeated the Chicago Wolves 2-1, and are only six points out of the playoffs.
- Markstrom was reassigned to Florida on Sunday. He did not play however, because his gear did not arrive until late in the first period vs Carolina. He eventually took Florida goaltending coach - and emergency "recall" - Robb Tallas' spot on the Cats' bench (Scott Clemmensen started the game).
- To fill the Markstrom void, G Brian Foster was recalled to San Antonio from ECHL Cincinnati on Monday.
