Strachan Recalled As Garrison Is Questionable For Game 5

Defenseman Tyson Strachan
With one defenseman definitely out and another said to be questionable, the Panthers made a call to San Antonio as a precaution for Saturday night's Game 5 at the BankAtlantic Center.

The first recall of the post-season, blueliner Tyson Strachan was recalled from the Rampage with defenseman Keaton Ellerby definitely out (lower body) for a pivotal game against the Devils. While a part of St Louis for a post-season, Strachan would make his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut if fellow blueliner Jason Garrison (lower body) is not able to go after testing out the injury in warmups. Garrison has already missed one game due to his injury (Game 4).

"I've spent four games with St Louis but I actually didn't play in any of them," said Strachan following the Panthers morning skate. "We got swept by Vancouver so I've been in the atmosphere but haven't been on the ice. If I get the chance tonight, I'm looking forward to it."

The 27-year old has spent time with the Panthers this season, playing in 15 games while registering three points (1-2-3) so if he does suit up, he should be just fine.

"He's played a regular shift in the NHL," said Cats head coach Kevin Dineen. "If he can do it during the regular season, he can do it in the playoffs."

"I've been playing in a playoff atmosphere down there and obviously it's a step up here but at the same time it's the best time of year," said Strachan. "It's the time of the year we all want to be playing. Just excited."

Strachan and the Rampage just started their first-round on Thursday. The blueliner registered three shots and was a plus-1 as San Antonio edged Chicago 5-4 in overtime.

"There's mixed emotions about that," said Strachan about going from one playoff team to another. "Obviously you want them to be winning down there but at the same time, the chance to be up here and in the Stanley Cup playoffs is a hard one to pass up.

"I'm just excited to be here and help out if they need me."
