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

Driedger has been outstanding in the AHL this season, posting a 2.09 GAA and .938 SV% in 14 games. His terrific play has translated into just six wins but is enough for him to be given an opportunity to be Sergei Bobrovsky's backup moving forward. Sam Montembeault heads the other way to take his spot as Springfield's starter.
