The Panthers have signed Grigori Denisenko to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Florida selected Denisenko with the No.15 overall pick in 2018. The 19-year-old winger has spent the last two seasons playing a minimal role in the KHL, posting just 12 points (6G / 6A) in 38 games this past season. However, while playing against players of his age, Denisenko has flourished. He has represented Russia at the World Juniors in each of the last two years and has combined for 18 points (7G / 11A) in 14 games. He should be in a Panthers' uniform in 2020-21 and will be among the pre-season favourites to win the Calder Trophy.

Driedger will start in St. Louis on Monday.

Driedger stopped 33 of 34 shots in the Panthers win over the Canadiens on Saturday. Since returning from injury, Driedger has gone 1-0-1 while stopping 59 of the 62 shots (.952 SV%) that he's faced. He has yet to lose on the road in two tries but draws a tough assignment in St. Louis, where the Blues have won five straight while scoring 3.40 goals per game.

Driedger (groin) will return to the Panthers crease on Thursday.

Driedger has been out since January 16th but will return to the net tonight vs. the Bruins. Driedger played extremely well for the Panthers from late-November up until he got hurt, going 5-2-0 with a 2.35 GAA and .932 SV%. Still, he has a terrible matchup tonight with the Bruins in town and so far they've scored four goals in each game against Florida in 2020.

The Panthers have recalled Chris Driedger from Springfield (AHL).

Driedger has been sidelined by a lower-body injury since mid-January and was recently sent to Springfield on a conditioning stint. He struggled in his only AHL game, allowing five goals on 33 shots in a 6-3 loss to Bridgeport. He could be in-line to start Thursday with Sergei Bobrovsky (lower-body) listed as day-to-day.

Bobrovsky suffered a lower-body injury in warmups on Sunday.

Bobrovsky was scheduled to start vs. the Flames but "tweaked" something during warmups which led to Samuel Montembeault getting the nod for the Panthers. If the Panthers want a chance at making the playoffs, they need a healthy Bobrovsky. Luckily they're off until Thursday, so he should be good-to-go.

Bobrovsky will start Saturday vs. the Blackhawks.

Bobrovsky surrendered four goals on 28 shots in the Panthers loss to the Maple Leafs on Thursday. The veteran has been very inconsistent in the month of February, going 4-7-1 with a 3.33 GAA and .903 SV% in 12 starts. Today he’ll try and keep the Panthers in the playoff hunt with a win over the Blackhawks—he stopped 32 of 35 shots in a 4-3 win in his first start vs. Chicago.
