The Florida Panthers announced Saturday evening that they have recalled defenseman Colby Robak from San Antonio of the American Hockey League. The 22 year-old Robak played three games for Florida last February when injuries decimated their defensive corps, the first games of his National Hockey League career.
With captain Ed Jovanovski already sidelined with an injured knee suffered in the January 29th loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Panthers have been playing with six defensemen on the roster since the February 8th trade of Keaton Ellerby to Los Angeles. The Panthers have not announced any injuries nor have any been reported elsewhere at this time so any speculation as to why the move was made would be just that. That mystery should solve itself quickly as the Panthers have a 3pm start to Sunday’s game against the Boston Bruins.
Through 52 games with the Rampage, Robak has 3 goals and 16 assists with a -6 rating.
