Panthers: auditions continue as recalls & demotions roll on
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...

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."
