Tyler Plante, Bill Thomas and Triston Grant Sent to Amerks

The Florida Panthers reduced their training camp roster by two more players today by putting Triston Grant and Bill Thomas on waivers.  Assuming they clear waivers, which they will, they’ll be assigned to the Rochester Americans.  Tyler Plante was also sent back to the Amerks, not sure if he had to officially go on waivers or not..  Grant is a physical player who also has a scoring touch.  Bill Thomas from what I’m told is a great two way player who could have some scoring capabilities.

Tyler Plante made three outstanding saves in last Thursdays preseason game against the Bruins.  If Plante can stay injury free and also keep the bullseye off of his back from being hit he should have a career season.
