Looking to lock down roster spot Tippett is holding down a spot on the third line as camp comes to an end, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.
Impact Tippett hasn't seen NHL action since the 2017-18 season, spending last year with AHL Springfield. The 10th overall pick in 2017, Tippett making the roster seems likely at this point, but the Panthers have been slow to move the 21-year-old to the NHL. Unless Tippett moves up to the top six or sees time on the first power-play unit, offense could be hard to come by for the rookie given Florida's lack of depth.
