Panthers prospects rock Predators by 8-5 count

Cats bounce back after lackluster performance on Saturday

After a rough final forty minutes against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, the Florida Panthers development camp crew bounced back by spanking the Nashville Predators by an 8-5 count at AdventHealth Center Ice in Wesley Chapel, FL.

The Kiddie Cats hung a five-spot on the Baby Preds in the opening period and never looked back.

Logan Hutsko and Serron Noel each scored twice and Grigori Denisenko, Eric Alarie, Justin Nachbaur and Henry Bowlby also lit the lamp.

Earning assists were Karch Bachman, Frederic Brunet, Bowlby, Denisenko, Matt Kiersted, Anton Lundell, Nachbaur (2), Noel, Simon Pinard and Justin Sourdif (2).

Tye Austin got start and gave up four goals before giving way to fellow development camp invitee Olivier Adam, who surrendered the final Nashville goal.
