The Florida Panthers will have a little bit of a different look Thursday when they take on the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Not only will goalie Chris Driedger go in for Sergei Bobrovsky but Markus Nutivaara will make his Florida debut after spending four seasons with the Jackets.

On Thursday, the Panthers made a roster move to fit Nutivaara onto the 23-man roster, dropping rookie forward Owen Tippett to the taxi squad.

Tippett played in Florida’s first three games but only played 7:02 off 12 shifts in Tuesday’s 4-3 shootout victory.

Of those shifts, only two came in the third period. Tippett did not play the last 13:34 of the third or any of the overtime.
