Greg McKegg didn't get a qualifying offer from Florida, but the team still wants him back for next season.

Panthers GM Tom Rowe said a contract was offered to McKegg after he impressed coach Gerard Gallant during his 15 appearances with the big club in 2015-16. McKegg can become an unrestricted free agent if he doesn't sign with Florida.

Greg McKegg went unclaimed on waivers.

That frees McKegg up to help the AHL's Portland Pirates in the playoffs. He had 10 goals and 23 points in 47 AHL contests during the regular season. He also appeared in 15 games with the Panthers during the 2015-16 campaign and found the back of the net twice.

Florida has placed Greg McKegg on waivers.

If/when he clears he will join the AHL's Portland Pirates in the Calder Cup Playoffs. Portland is tied with Hershey at 1-1 in their best-of-five first-round series.

Greg McKegg is a healthy scratch for the Panthers in Game 6 on Saturday night.

Quinton Howden will also take a seat in the press box against the Islanders. McKegg has played in one game (two shots on goal), while Howden has sat out in all of them this postseason.
Apr 24 - 7:06 PM

Greg McKegg will tag in for Logan Shaw in Game 3 against the Islanders on Sunday.

Niether forward was much of a contributor to the score sheet during the regular season, unfortunately. McKegg especially, as he only saw just 15 games of action.
Apr 17 - 2:47 PM

Greg McKegg scored the second goal of his career during Tuesday's 4-1 win over Montreal.

Two goals in 14 games isn't half bad. The 23-year-old isn't much of a scoring asset, however so we would leave him on the wire.
Apr 6 - 12:54 AM

Greg McKegg, Shawn Thornton and Alex Petrovic will all be healthy scratches in Monday's game against the Maple Leafs.

Petrovic has two goals, 16 points and a plus-13 rating in 63 games in 2015-16. This will be his third straight game as a healthy scratch. McKegg, who was originally drafted by the Leafs, has played a career-high 13 games in the NHL this year. Thornton is nothing more than a veteran enforcer. There's no fantasy value here.
Apr 4 - 7:37 PM

Greg McKegg scored his first NHL goal in the Panthers loss to the Maple Leafs Tuesday.

McKegg's first NHL goal coincidently came against his former team. The goal was scored by McKegg jamming in a rebound from Teddy Purcell in the third period.
Mar 30 - 11:40 AM

Greg McKegg will tag in for Derek MacKenzie for Tuesday's match with Montreal.

The 23-year-old McKegg has no points in 10 career NHL games. He also has just 60 points over his last 109 AHL games the past two seasons, so he doesn't project to provide much fantasy value.
Mar 15 - 6:05 PM

Greg McKegg has been recalled by Florida.

He is up with the team on an emergency basis. McKegg has no points in six outings with the Panthers this season and he has posted 23 points in 47 AHL appearances.

Mar 1 - 10:06 AM

Greg McKegg was summoned up to the bigs by the Panthers on Sunday.

The 23-year-old forward is taking Aleskander Barkov's spot on the active roster with him now on IR. McKegg has posted nine goals and 21 points in 43 games for AHL Portland.
Feb 14 - 2:46 PM

The Florida Panthers have acquired Greg McKegg from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Zach Hyman and a 2017 conditional seventh round pick.

This is a trade Florida probably wouldn't have made if not for the fact that Hyman had already told the squad that he wouldn't sign with them. McKegg, 23, had 22 goals and 37 points in 62 AHL games in 2014-15. He'll probably start the 2015-16 season in the minors.

Greg McKegg has been reassigned to the AHL.

He suited up in his third game with the Maple Leafs on Thursday night and logged 11:56 of ice time. McKegg played with Joffrey Lupul and David Booth.
