The Panthers have assigned Henrik Borgstrom to Springfield (AHL).

Borgstrom seemed like a lock to make the Panthers’ opening night lineup as a third line centre or winger, but he will start the year in the AHL. The 6-foot-3, former first-round pick (No. 23 overall) turned pro at the end of last season after compiling 23 goals and 29 assists (52 points) in 40 games at the University of Denver.
