Panthers Call up Tyler Plante

Keith WozniakCorrespondent INovember 14, 2008

The Florida Panthers called up Tyler Plante from the Dayton Bombers to be on stand by as Tomas Vokoun is suffering from back spasms.  The Panthers next game is on Friday night in Florida against the Detroit Red Wings.  Tyler Plante was sent down to the ECHL earlier this week, and then called up to the Panthers in the NHL.

At practice on Thursday morning, Benoit Groulx seemed to indicate that the Plante / Shantz swap in Rochester was one made by himself and management, not the Panthers.

The Panthers have some solid goal tending with Craig Anderson and Tomas Vokoun, but we’re still thinking Plante is being looked upon for the future.
