Panik was elevated from AHL Bridgeport on Saturday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Panik figures to immediately step into the lineup against the Flames on Saturday, as the team will be without Ross Johnston, Josh Bailey, Anders Lee or Anthony Beauvillier, all of whom are currently in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols. It will be Panik's first game of the season for New York after starting the year in the minors, where he has tallied just two goals in 11 contests.
