Tomas Fleischmann doesn't have a point after five games this season, but coach Gerard Gallant has liked what he's seen so far.
Fleischmann has 11 shots on goal and he's played well defensively. He had been playing with Dave Bolland, who has a lower-body injury, and Sean Bergenheim, but at practice on Monday he skated with Brandon Pirri and Jussi Jokinen. He's trying to keep a more positive outlook in 2014-15 than he had last year when his scoring slumps took a serious toll on his game. "I felt like I had to score to get the guys going and when it didn't work I felt bad for myself," Fleischmann said. "That's part of my hockey game I don't want to see this year." Oct 21 - 9:46 AM

It didn't take long for Tomas Fleischmann to put the 2013-14 season in his rearview mirror.

"I forgot last season the day after it ended," Fleischmann said after practice Monday. "There's nothing I could do to change about it so I'm focusing on myself and how I can prepare for this season so it goes well. I know I can do it, so it's time to show it." He scored just eight goals and 28 points in 80 games last season. Fleischmann already has plenty of motivation to turn it around this year, but he's also eligible for unrestricted free agency next summer.

Tomas Fleischmann scored a rare goal for the Panthers in Sunday's 6-2 blowout loss to the Ducks.

It's hard to explain why the talented winger has struggled so badly this season since he had enjoyed two productive campaigns prior to this one, but his total of eight goals in 70 games is a massive disappointment. Jimmy Hayes also scored in the loss, reaching double-digit markers for the first time in his career.

Tomas Fleischmann opened the scoring with a power-play goal in Thursday's loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

His seventh goal of the season snapped a six-game pointless skid for the struggling forward. Fleischmann has generated just 25 points in 64 games this season.
Mar 14 - 9:10 AM

Tomas Fleischmann admitted that his lack of offensive production this season has gotten to him.

Panthers coach Peter Horachek suggested that Fleischmann has been "pressing" and focused on scoring goals above everything else and that's had a snowballing effect on his slump. Fleischmann doesn't dispute that he's had a "pressing" attitude lately. "You work hard over the summer, and you want the season to go well," Fleischmann said. "And if it doesn't, it kind of beats you down. This is the first time I've faced this. I have to learn to forget about things behind me and just focus on the next game." He scored a goal on Thursday, ending his 22-game drought, so maybe that will help him turn things around. Of course, at this point all he can hope for is ending the season on a high note.
Mar 1 - 10:26 AM

Tomas Fleischmann scored just his sixth goal of the season in Thursday's loss to the Washington Capitals.

He ended a 22-game goalless drought and is looking to finish a horrid 2013-14 campaign on a productive note. Fleischmann has 24 points in 57 games this season. He's another possible trade candidate and a change of scenery could do wonders for his fantasy value.
Feb 28 - 8:33 AM

The Olympic break seemed to help Tomas Fleischmann re-focus after a terrible 56 games to date.

The 29-year-old forward has only 23 points this season and was struggling when the NHL suspended play. Fleischmann had not recorded a point in the Panthers' last five games. If he can re-gain his scoring ability, Fleischmann is a prime trade candidate.

Tomas Fleischmann will be back in the Florida lineup Saturday against Columbus.

He was a healthy scratch for the first time in his three-year career as a Panther. "It was his time to sit back and watch", said Panther coach Peter Horacek. "He doesn't want it; well, we want his best, too. I need the competitiveness, wanting to play hard with and without the puck. It's the same with all the guys." We expect Fleischmann to play with a little chip on his shoulder Saturday against Columbus.
Feb 1 - 10:47 AM

Tomas Fleischmann was a healthy scratch against Toronto on Thursday night.

It was the first time during his three years with the Panthers that he's been relegated to the press box, which shouldn't be surprising because he's led the team in scoring for the previous two seasons. Fleischmann is also the highest-paid forward on the team, but he's struggled to contribute offense this season with only five goals and 23 points in 52 games. Still, he was surprised to be scratched and he's eager to get back into the lineup.
Jan 31 - 7:02 AM

Tomas Fleischmann received a season-low 10:08 of ice time in Sunday's shootout win over Detroit.

He was up to 15:18 of playing time in Tuesday's loss to Boston, but he hasn't scored in his last 18 games. "He's just got to get his spirits back," interim coach Peter Horachek said. "It looks like he's down on himself, like he's almost depressed. I think he's frustrated with himself. It started way back, he had a ton of chances, a lot of opportunities and posts. He's got to shake that off and get back to work and compete, skate hard and shoot the puck the way he can." He has five goals and 23 points in 52 games this year, which surprisingly has him just one point away from a share of the team lead.
Jan 29 - 8:37 AM

Panthers coach Peter Horachek says he will likely take struggling forward Tomas Fleischmann off the team's power-play point to try and get something going there.

Florida, which has scored two goals or fewer in six of its past eight games, is definitely looking for more out of a lot of its top offensive players. Aside from the line of Aleksander Barkov, Brad Boyes and Sean Bergenheim, Florida isn’t getting much production out of anyone. In the past six weeks, Fleischmann, Scottie Upshall, Shawn Matthias, Jonathan Huberdeau and Tomas Kopecky have combined for five goals and 16 assists over an 18-game span. The Panthers have just 14 goals in their past eight games. "Obviously, I’m one of the first people who should shoot and score goals," said Fleischmann, who has led the Panthers in scoring in each of his first two years with Florida. "I have to pick it up." Since Dec. 8, he has one goal and five assists.
Jan 20 - 9:34 AM

Tomas Fleischmann's miserable season continued Thursday as he was held pointless in a 3-0 loss to San Jose.

Fleischmann has registered just two points in his last 11 contests and has scored only two goals over his last 33. We simply can't recommend him in leagues of any size at this point.
Jan 16 - 11:05 PM

Tomas Fleischmann had an assist in Florida's 2-1 loss on Saturday.

It was just Fleischmann's second point in nine games. He was fantastic in 2011-12 with 61 points in 82 contests and he followed it up with 35 points in 48 games in the shortened campaign. He's taken a major step back with just 21 points in 44 games this season.
Jan 12 - 10:23 AM

Tomas Fleischmann didn't get an invite from the Czech Republic to play in the Winter Olympics.

"I had a great time in Vancouver [in 2010 Olympics]," Fleischmann said before the team was announced. "I always dreamed about making the Olympic team. I was happy I did and it was a fun time against the best players in the NHL and around the world." He was probably disappointed that he wasn't able to crack their roster this time around. However, the decision isn't surprising because Fleischmann has struggled offensively this season with five goals and 15 assists in 42 matches.
Jan 7 - 8:56 AM

Tomas Fleischmann tallied his fifth marker of the 2013-14 season.

He scored the first goal of the game in Tuesday's 3-1 win against Toronto. In his previous two seasons with the Panthers, Fleischmann was a stable source of offense, but he's had a difficult time producing offense this year. He has 18 points in 34 games.
