Florida Panthers Assign Forward Owen Tippett to Mississauga


SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers President of Hockey Operations & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has assigned forward Owen Tippett to the Ontario Hockey League’s (OHL) Mississauga Steelheads.

“Owen was impressive in his time with our club and has a bright future with the Panthers,” said Tallon. “This was a tough decision, but we think it’s best for his long-term development.”

Tippett, 18, appeared in seven games with Florida this season, recording one goal and 17 shots. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of Peterborough, Ontario, scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 26 against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Panthers selected Tippett in the first round (10th overall) of the 2017 NHL Draft.

In the 2016-17 season, he led Mississauga with 44 goals and 75 points in 60 games, while ranking fifth for goals in the OHL. In 20 playoff games, Tippett produced 19 points (10-9-19).
