SUNRISE, Fla. — The Florida Panthers have activated forward Brandon Pirri from injured reserve and have placed center Dave Bolland on injured reserve, retroactive to Feb. 21, the team announced Saturday.

Pirri, 23, has recorded nine goals and 11 points in 28 games with the Panthers this season. He has missed the last nine games after sustaining a shoulder injury during Florida’s 6-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Feb. 10.

"It’s exciting," said Pirri, who missed 10 games earlier this season with a concussion. "It’s been a difficult year, but there are still a lot of games left and I’m just going to try to make the most out of it and help the team."

Bolland, 28, has appeared in 37 games during his first season with the Panthers, registering three goals, 13 points and 34 penalty minutes. He last played on Feb. 21 during Florida’s 5-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators where he sustained an upper-body injury.

In addition to these moves, the club also announced that forward Garrett Wilson has been reassigned to the San Antonio Rampage (AHL).

Wilson, 23, played in two games for Florida this season, recording five shots. He has appeared in 53 games with San Antonio this season, recording 18 goals, 11 assists and 64 penalty minutes.
