According to beat reporter George Richards, the Florida Panthers won't be signing forward Martin Havlat.
The veteran attended Panthers' camp on a professional tryout. The decision not to sign Havlat isn't surprising. The 34-year-old wasn't productive with New Jersey last year and he hasn't been for quite some time. He will continue to have a hard time finding work in the NHL. His best bet may be to continue his career overseas. Oct 6 - 10:28 PM

Martin Havlat is still fighting for a roster spot but won't get a chance to play in the Panthers' pre-season finale Saturday night.

This is not a good sign for the veteran. Havlat was in camp on a professional tryout and is battling Connor Brickley, Lawson Crouse, Garrett Wilson and Quinton Howden for a roster spot. It looks as if Crouse and Brickley have a leg up on the others. Stay tuned.

Martin Havlat, who is attending camp on a professional tryout, still has a chance to claim a roster spot with Florida.

David Booth, who was with the Panthers on a PTO, was cut on Wednesday. Havlat is competing for a spot with young forwards Quinton Howden, Connor Brickley, Garrett Wilson and Lawson Crouse.

It seems that Florida GM Dale Tallon has only one roster spot for Martin Havlat and David Booth.

The two veterans are in camp on a professional tryout basis. Tallon has intimated that only one will make the team. Keep an eye on this situation as the winner of this battle may line up alongside Nick Bjugstad on the Cats' second line.

Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon wants to ramp up the competition during training camp.

Tallon has handed out professional tryouts to veterans David Booth and Martin Havlat. The Panthers GM doesn't want young players to think that they are going to be handed a roster spot, so he's hoping that veterans like Booth and Havlat will push those guys. "They both wanted to come here and show their wares,’’ Tallon said. "They have history and knowledge. You never know about injuries, and we have a lot of young guys. If they’re not ready, that’s fine. We have protection. It’s all good. Competition doesn’t hurt anyone. Everyone has to work for a job. We’re not just going to give them to the kids because they’re kids."

Martin Havlat has been invited to Florida's training camp on a professional tryout.

There was consideration from the Senators last month, but Havlat will try his hand at cracking the Panthers' roster instead. He recorded five goals and 14 points in 40 games with New Jersey last year. Havlat's presence at camp may just be to motivate the younger skaters, who Florida is hoping to put in the lineup on opening night.

Ottawa assistant GM Pierre Dorion confirmed that Bryan Murray has reached out to Martin Havlat about attending Senators' training camp on a pro tryout.

"When Bryan coached he was one of Bryan's favorite players," Dorion said. "If I remember correctly, Bryan used (Havlat) on the PK. and if I remember correctly that had never happened and he was a good penalty killer. Obviously Marty is not the same player he was five years ago but it's something I know Bryan and [Havlat's agent] Allan [Walsh] have discussed." Havlat began his career with the Senators after he was drafted by the club with the 26th overall pick in the 1999 draft.

Martin Havlat is expected to become an unrestricted free agent in July.

The Devils have not confirmed that Havlat won't be retained yet, but that's unlikely to happen after he watched plenty of games as a healthy scratch late in the year. Havlat also earned just five goals and 14 points in 40 games in 2014-15.

Martin Havlat will tag in for the sick Mike Cammalleri against the Buffalo Sabres on Friday night.

It'll be Havlat's first game since February 27th against Boston. It's been another difficult season for Havlat, who has scored just five goals and 14 points through 38 games. He's expected to skate to the left of Travis Zajac and Jordin Tootoo to form the Devils' second line.

Martin Havlat will be scratched against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.

Havlat has yet to play during the month of March, and has just 38 games with five goals and 14 points to his credit this season. Unfortunately, he no longer has any fantasy value.

Martin Havlat will be scratched against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.

With just five goals and 14 points through 38 games this season, it's not hard to see why Havlat no longer seems to have much of a place in the Devils lineup.

Martin Havlat and Michael Ryder will be healthy scratches again on Thursday night.

This comes one day after Havlat shattered a stick in practice. The veterans are clearly frustrated with their lack of playing time, but their production has been non-existent this season. Havlat has five goals and 14 points in 38 games while Ryder has six goals and 18 points in 44 games. It appears as though Lou Lamoriello is trying to make a point by keeping them out of the lineup.

Martin Havlat's seemed to let his frustrations boil over during Wednesday's practice.

Havlat bashed his stick against the boards several times, breaking it into pieces. He then threw the shaft into the stands. "It actually felt good," Havlat admitted. He said he was set off by being hit in the face, but it wouldn't be surprising if the fact that he's only played once since Feb. 14 was a factor. He's not injured, but he can't seem to find a way to stay in the Devils' lineup.

Martin Havlat and Michael Ryder will be scratched for Tuesday's game against Minnesota.

Both players were once very relevant fantasy players but their careers have seen better days. Havlat has five goals and 14 points in 38 games. Ryder has six goals and 18 points in 44 contests.
Mar 10 - 8:13 PM

Martin Havlat and Michael Ryder will be scratched against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

Over the last three weeks, both Havlat and Ryder have played one game each. And it wasn't the same game. Through 82 combined games this season, the two veteran forwards have amassed 11 goals and 32 points. Simply not much fantasy value there.
