Jonathan Huberdeau skated alongside veteran Alex Kovalev and converted center Peter Mueller on Tuesday.

Huberdeau and Kovalev form an interesting pair on the ice, since the Panthers' top prospect wasn't even born yet when Kovalev was 19 and playing in his first NHL game in 1992. "He's unbelievable on the ice, unbelievable hands, so it's great to see him out there," said Huberdeau. "I watched him play in Montreal [from 2003-09], and it was exciting every game he was there. To be on the ice with him is kind of a dream, to talk strategy off the ice, too, so we can get to know each other." This could be an intriguing line to watch if it stays together when Florida opens their season Saturday night against Carolina. The team is in desperate need of secondary scoring and a combination of Huberdeau, Kovalev and Mueller could help.

Ryan Callahan (lower body) hasn't been ruled out of playing Thursday, but he said it's more realistic that his return could come on Saturday.

Matt Stajan (knee) has been placed on injured reserve by the Flames.
