Jakub Kindl has been returned to the minors.

He was a healthy scratch on Monday so he didn't see any NHL action during his stint with the Panthers. Kindl has one goal and two assists in nine games with the Springfield Thunderbirds this year.

Jakub Kindl will be a healthy scratch in Monday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Florida Panthers have summoned Jakub Kindl from AHL Springfield.

The 29-year-old has three points in nine games, but that's not his calling card. Kindl has just 70 points in 292 career NHL games, so we'd leave him on the wire.

Jakub Kindl has been put on waivers by Florida.

He dressed in 19 games with the Panthers last season after he was acquired from Detroit.

Jakub Kindl and Quinton Howden will be scratched for Sunday's Game 3 against the Islanders.

Kindl saw 12:30 of action earlier in the series, but has since given way to rookie Michael Matheson. Until he drops off or injury occurs, it's unlikely that Kindl will see much action in the near future.

Jakub Kindl, Quinton Howden, and Greg McKegg will each be scratched Friday night against the Islanders in Game 3.

Kindl saw 19 games of action with the Panthers since coming over from Detroit, but posted just a pair of points. Howden meanwhile amassed 116 hits over his 58 games as a rookie this season.

Jakub Kindl might be a healthy scratch in Game 2, based on Friday's practice.

Kindl only logged 12:30 minutes of ice time in Game 1 and didn't look particularly good in the play that led to Ryan Strome's game-winning goal. If he is scratched in Game 2, Michael Matheson will likely draw into the lineup.

Jakub Kindl will face his former team, the Detroit Red Wings, for the first time on Saturday.

The 29-year-old defender posted just 68 points, 149 PIMs, 183 blocks, and 252 hits during his 273 game and seven-plus season stint with Detroit. "To be honest, I don't know what to expect," Kindl said. "From the drop of the puck, it's going to be all business, but I'm sure after the game we're all going to talk and see how it went."

Jakub Kindl will be scratched against the Jets on Tuesday night.

Through 25 games with the Red Wings this season, Kindl posted six points and not much else. Even with Florida he doesn't boast much fantasy value.

Jakub Kindl has been summoned from the minors by Florida.

He was acquired from Detroit over the weekend for a sixth-round draft pick. Kindl had six points and a plus-3 rating in 25 games with Detroit this campaign.

The Florida Panthers have acquired Jakub Kindl from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a sixth-round pick in 2017.

The Wings will also retain 15 percent of Kindl's remaining salary. Detroit placed Kindl on waivers multiple times this season, but they were unable to find a taker for his services. He's nothing more than a depth defenseman at this point in his career. His fantasy value doesn't increase with a move to Florida. Kindl has one year remaining on his contract. He comes with a cap hit of $2.04 million.
