Matthias, Duco back to Rochester

A little late on this, but Panthers forwards Mike Duco and Shawn Matthias have been reassigned to the Americans, paving the way for a return by injured wingers Cory Stillman and Nick Tarnasky to the Cats' lineup this week.

Matthias (3p, +1 his past five games with FLA) and Duco (0p, 19 pim in five) are welcomed back to a Rochester club which saw early success, but has struggled of late after losing numerous players to callups and injury, going 2-7-1 over their last ten matches.

Interestingly - though not entirely surprising - was the retention of Steve MacIntyre, who hasn't logged more than 2:14 TOI in any of the five games he's played stretching back to November 27th, a game in which he took a five-minute fighting penalty, but none since. He's pointless over that time (with so little action, how could any offense be expected?). The nuclear option remains.
