SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive VP/General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has recalled D Alex Petrovic from the San Antonio Rampage (AHL).

Last season, the 6-foot-4 blueliner was named the WHL’s Defenseman of the Year after recording 48 points (12-36-48) and 141 PIM in 68 games with the Red Deer Rebels before suiting up for San Antonio in the final five regular season games and then recorded six points (2-4-6) in nine playoff games.
