No word yet on who will come out of the lineup
Defenseman Alexander Petrovic, 19, was sent back to his junior team in Red Deer, Alberta, after Thursday's practice. The 36th overall pick in 2010, Petrovic had an outstanding season last year and is considered one of Florida's top prospects.
Petrovic will play one more season in Juniors and then be reevaluated. At age 19 the blueliner scored seven goals and 57 points in only 69 games with the Red Deer Rebels. He should have a bright future ahead of him.
