The Panthers today announced that they have recalled Lucas Carlsson from Charlotte.

The 25-year-old Swede set single-season franchise records for the most goals (20) and points (54) by a defenseman, leading all AHL blue liners in the former and ranking second in the latter. Carlsson also posted four points (2g, 2a) in three games during Charlotte’s first-round defeat of Lehigh Valley - including the double overtime-winner in Game 2.

The Panthers continue their first-round series against Boston with Game 4 today, while the Checkers begin their second-round showdown with Hershey on Friday.
