Aaron Ekblad feels he learned a great deal from his struggles last season.
"That's a season where you really realize how hard it is, how hard this league is, how hard it is to stick around," Ekblad said. "It's easy to take that for granted with the money that we're paid and the opportunities that we get. You have to really humble yourself. Last year humbled me." He posted an NHL career-low 21 points and a career worst minus-23 rating, while skating in 68 games. The 21-year-old defender said he "may have cruised through my first two years a little bit too much. The real work began this summer." Ekblad feels more confident and healthy going into the 2017-18 campaign. He wants to lead the Panthers back to the playoffs. Aug 4 - 8:52 AM
