Gudbranson remains with Panthers

On the cusp of appearing in his ninth game with the Cats, rookie defenseman Erik Gudbranson was informed by head coach Kevin Dineen that he will not be reassigned to OHL Kingston.

Gudbranson, 19, was Florida's first selection (third overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. He has yet to record a point, thus far collecting a minus-4, 7 shots, 8 hits, and 3 blocks; his 24 penalty minutes tie him for 10th in the league.
