The Florida Panthers are in no hurry to promote prospect Vincent Trocheck.

"That's not the way you develop players. You force kids into the wrong time wrong place," said interim coach Peter Horachek. "He'll get his opportunities and lots of opportunities if there's an injury to [centers Aleksander Barkov or Nick Bjugstad] then he'll get an opportunity. Otherwise it's best serving for him and the future for him to continue to be a top player there and play in all those situations."

Florida has struggled offensively this season, but they don't feel pressured to make changes so Trocheck will have to wait for another opportunity.
