The Panthers have assigned Juho Lammikko to Springfield (AHL).
Lammikko, 22, had six assists in 40 games during his time with the Panthers. With Vincent Trocheck (ankle) set to make his return to the lineup on Friday, Lammikko was the odd-man-out on the active roster.
Lammikko will be a healthy scratch on Saturday.
Lammikko has five assists in 30 games this season but has been held pointless in the last 15 games and 28 of 30 games. Lammikko will be replace by Denis Malgin.
The Panthers have recalled Juho Lammikko from Springfield (AHL).
Lammikko, 22, was a third round pick (No.65 overall) in 2014 and has spent the last two seasons with the Thunderbirds. Lammikko has just 14 goals and 25 assists (39 points) in 108 career AHL games. He is expected to make his NHL debut on Thursday with Derek MacKenzie dealing with an upper-body injury.
