Forward prospect heads back to the AHL
The Florida Panthers announced today that forward Grigori Denisenko has been reassigned from Florida’s Taxi Squad to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League .
Denisenko, appeared in two games with Florida this season, making his National Hockey League debut on March 6 against the Nashville Predators. The 5-foot-11, 186-pound native of Novosibirsk, Russia has appeared in four games with the Crunch this season, recording two goals and three points.
The 20-year-old hasn’t seen any game action since March 7, so the move will allow him to get some much-needed playing time with Syracuse.
