The Panthers sent veteran goalie Dan Ellis to their AHL affiliate in San Antonio on Tuesday leaving their training camp roster at 31 players.
Florida is expected to make eight more moves in the coming days and open the season with 23 players.
Ellis, 34, came to the Panthers from Dallas on trade deadline day in March in exchange for Tim Thomas. Ellis went 0-5 and stopped 84 percent of his shots faced to finish the 2013-14 season with Florida.
In July, the Panthers signed Al Montoya to backup Roberto Luongo although Ellis said he planned on doing the job.
Ellis stopped 14 of 17 shots this preseason. He cleared waivers on Monday but remained with the team in Dallas.
