The Florida Panthers have assigned forward Owen Tippett to the OHL's Mississauga Steelheads, general manager Dale Tallon announced Monday.

"Owen was impressive in his time with our club and has a bright future with the Panthers," said Tallon. "This was a tough decision, but we think it's best for his long-term development."

Tippett was selected 10th overall at this year's draft, and recorded one goal on 17 shots through his first seven games at the NHL level.

Last season, he led Mississauga with 44 goals and 75 points in 60 games.
