Vermin was again recalled by the Lightning on Monday. Vermin continues to get juggled between the two levels, being promoted and demoted numerous times this season. He doesn't see enough action at the top level even when he plays, so it's unlikely the winger will obtain enough fantasy value this season to be worthy of ownership down the stretch.
Vermin was sent down to AHL Syracuse on Sunday. The winger was scratched in both games after he was called up, serving only as some extra depth on the bench. His reassignment seems to signal the return of one of the many injured Lightning forwards.
Vermin was recalled from AHL Syracuse in advance of Saturday's home game against the Capitals, Lightning Insider reports. The organizational shuffler will be on hand in case Ondrej Palat (undisclosed) can't give it a go in the next contest. Vermin's done OK with the Crunch this season (28 points in 43 games), but getting called up this late reminds us that he's waiver fodder in virtually any fantasy league.
Vermin was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday. As a rookie, Vermin's role has naturally been limited the season; he's averaged 11:20 of ice time per contest, contributing three helpers in an 11-game span. The Bolts don't play again until Friday, so there's a chance that he could return to the big club before then -- it largely depends on the health of Ryan Callahan, who is working his way back from a hip injury.
The Lightning recalled Vermin from AHL Syracuse on Saturday. Ondrej Palat is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury, so Vermin will round out Tampa Bay's depth at forward while the veteran winger is in recovery mode. The 24-year-old forward has been pretty productive in the minors this season, notching 17 points in 27 games with AHL Syracuse, but will likely be reassigned as soon as Palat is fit to play.
