NewsJoey Crabb might still return to the NHL this season.
Impact"He didn't have a good camp, but [the demotion] wasn't based on just one thing," Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "The message I send him is that this isn't a closed door. He needs to go down and get his game in order so he can help this organization." Crabb had no points in just 9:49 minutes of ice time before heading to the AHL.

I'll just bring what I've always done. I'll bring energy and a good two-way game." He tallied 17 goals and 38 points in 35 games with the Alaska Aces of the ECHL during the lockout.
