Josh Brown has been loaned to the Springfield Thunderbirds of the AHL.

Josh Brown is still battling for a position of Florida's defense.

Brown wasn't expected to make it this far in camp, but he's done enough to earn a longer look. "I want to make the coach’s job as hard as possible to get rid of me," said Brown. "My confidence is growing. I’ve gone the farthest I’ve ever gone in training camp this year, and I want to keep going." The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder is a stay-at-home defenseman with little offensive upside. The Panthers still have cuts to make, so there's still the possibility that he'll be sent to the minors before the start of the regular season.

Brown had 21 points and 92 penalty minutes in 60 OHL contests in 2014-15. He was selected by Florida in the sixth round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. "We are pleased to have agreed to an entry-level contract with Josh," said Panthers GM Dale Tallon. "Josh has helped lead the Oshawa Generals to four consecutive postseason appearances, while serving as Oshawa's captain for the past two seasons."
