The Florida Panthers have recalled forward Drew Shore from the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League. The team also announced they have sent Bobby Butler back to the AHL to make room for Shore.
Shore has played in 21-games this season for the Panthers, scoring six points (5 G, 1 A) in that span. In 48-games with the Rampage, he is tied for the team lead in assist (25) and has scored six goals as well.
With a surplus of centers, Shore was sent to the AHL to ensure that he would continue to get enough playing time to allow him to develop. Not only that but he was also nearing his limit to the amount of games he can play before he loses his waiver exemption.
To be exact, he has four games left, with the fifth game kicking in his waiver status. So Shore will get a short, and safe (for the team) tryout to be a member of the 2013-2014 team. He still has one more year on his entry level contract, so these last three games will be huge to determine how next will shape up for him.
