The Florida Panthers Added former Ohio State Buckeye standout Anthony Greco, and Renaud Lavoie reports that Greco will receive a two-way deal worth the league minimum of $650K for the remainder of the 2017-18 season.
This is Greco’s second season in the AHL (Springfield Thunderbirds) and he is one of their more reliable scoring threats coming from the wings of the rink.
In addition, the 24-year old winger was a top-five scorer for Springfield in 2016-17, plus he has a team-best six goals this year and recorded a total of nine points in 19 games.
Also, Greco will most likely get called up to the NHL with the Florida Panthers struggling and already promoting and demoting players such as Denis Malgin, Chase Balisy, and Dryden Hunt.
Lastly, the signing of Greco just adds another option to the arsenal for Florida as the look to find the right mix up front.
Note: Greco is a former captain at Ohio State. As a four-year Buckeye, Greco registered 72 points in 125 games.
