Panthers: auditions continue as recalls & demotions roll on

New, comments

Not much question the Florida Panthers are looking toward next year and beyond as bodies are transferred between Sunrise and Rochester with greater frequency.

Forwards Bill Thomas and Tim Kennedy were returned to the Amerks on Sunday, opening space for wingers Jordan Knackstedt and  Eric Selleck to make their Panthers season debut.

Knackstedt, a RW, has 9 points (4 goals) in 31 games with Rochester, while LW Selleck appeared in 58 matches, notching 2 goals and 12 points. Both players are on two-way entry-level deals (Knackstedt will be an RFA in July).

Florida hosts Philadelphia Tuesday.

UPDATE:  via Twitter, OFP is reporting Patrick Rissmiller and Mike Duco have been recalled from ROC. Good luck in sorting all of this out.

UPDATE 2:  From the AHL...

03/14/2011 Eric Selleck (LW) Rochester ADD Returned on loan from Florida/NHL
03/14/2011 Jordan Knackstedt (RW) Rochester ADD Returned on loan from Florida/NHL
03/14/2011 Michael Duco (LW) Rochester DEL Recalled from loan by Florida/NHL
03/13/2011 Bill Thomas (RW) Rochester ADD Returned on loan from Florida (NHL)
03/13/2011 Eric Selleck (LW) Rochester DEL Recalled from loan by Florida (NHL)
03/13/2011 Jordan Knackstedt (RW) Rochester DEL Recalled from loan by Florida (NHL)
03/13/2011 Tim Kennedy (C) Rochester ADD Returned on loan from Florida (NHL)

Soooo...at the end of the day - or 5:30 pm, anyway - Duco appears to be the only call-up to Florida. Selleck has been suspended for four games by the American League "as a result of his actions in a game vs. Toronto on Mar. 11."
