Panthers send Jacob Markstrom to AHL after dismal start
Markstrom has long been considered the goalie of the future for the Panthers, but he has struggled mightily this season with a 1-5-3 record. His .877 save percentage and 3.36 goals against average are among the worst stats for a goalie this season. Scott Clemmensen and Tim Thomas will now rotate starts in net for the Panthers.
His team certainly hasn't done Markstrom any favors this season, but his overall record of 11-24-5 in the NHL suggests the 23-year-old still has a lot of work to do before he's ready for a starting NHL job.
