Florida Panthers Place Aleksander Barkov on IR

The Florida Panthers have placed Aleksander Barkov on IR, and have recalled Greg McKegg according to SportsNet.  The 20 year-old Barkov had been having an extremely strong sophomore season, notching 16 goals and 19 assists in 43 games.  He was injured on February 8, after taking a hit from the Detroit Red Wings' Justin Abdelkader.

McKegg, a third-round draft pick of the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2010, has 9 goals and 12 assists in 41 games for the Portland Pirates this season.  McKegg was acquired by the Panthers in a 2015 trade with Toronto which saw Zach Hyman and a conditional 2017 draft pick head to the Leafs.
