CLEMMENSEN RETURNS TO MINORS: Panthers Send Goalie Back to San Antonio ... Wild Comes to Town

Florida's three-goalie experiment didn't last long at all as Scott Clemmensen was sent back to the Panthers' AHL affiliate in San Antonio.

Clemmensen, 33, missed all of training camp after having minor knee surgery in September. He has started one game in the AHL this season and relieved Jacob Markstrom in a loss at Tampa Bay last week. Markstrom is now backing up Tim Thomas.

"This is a flexible situation,'' coach Kevin Dineen said. "It's important for Clemmensen to get some games. We need depth at every single position and a goalie is no good if he's sitting every day.''
