Friday: Repo has cleared waivers and will be joining Lukko back in Finland.
Repo, 23, signed his entry-level contract with the Panthers in 2017 after being selected in the sixth round, but hasn’t made it out of the AHL. In fact, he has played just 17 games for the Springfield Thunderbirds this season.
Though this makes him an unrestricted free agent allowed to sign with anyone in the league, Repo will likely return to Europe for the time being. The winger had 26 points in 71 games for his AHL career, but was a much more efficient offensive weapon playing in Finland.
