Player News - Panthers

Date: Team: Pos:

Jonathan Marchessault is considered day-to-day with a lower body injury.

Through 25 games this season the breakout sensation for the Panthers has posted 10 goals and 19 points along with 12 PIMs and 37 hits. That'll make fantasy owners happy across the land.

Paul Thompson has been summoned up from AHL Springfield.

The 28-year-old has posted six goals and 15 points in 20 games this season down on the farm. He did not record a point in the three games he saw with the New Jersey Devils last season, however.

Nick Bjugstad was shifted back to center prior to the Panthers' 2-0 loss to Ottawa Saturday night.

Bjugstad had a five-game trial on the wing alongside Denis Malgin that didn't work out too well. Panthers' interim coach Tom Rowe shifted Bjugstad back to the pivot position. It doesn't really make much of a difference to Bjugstad's fantasy value as in either case he is still playing on the Cats' third line.
Dec 4 - 10:38 AM

Aaron Ekblad needed a few stiches to deal with a gash below his right eye sustained in Saturday night's loss to Ottawa.

He left the game in the first period for the repairs but returned to finish the contest. Ekblad should be just fine for Florida's next game Monday against Boston.
Dec 4 - 10:32 AM

Roberto Luongo gave up two goals on 21 shots Saturday night as the Florida Panthers fell to the Ottawa Senators 2-0.

This was Luongo’s worst outing since he lost a 3-1 contest to the Flyers November 22nd. His previous three efforts all ended with save percentages greater than .950.
Dec 3 - 10:59 PM

Aleksander Barkov was one of four Panthers who made three shots on goal Saturday night, but it was not enough as they lost 2-0 to the Ottawa Senators.

Barkov had more than 22 minutes on ice as did Vincent Trocheck who also had three shots—both were simply unable to make anything of their effort. Mike Condon will get credited with the shutout win, but he was not challenged very often as the Panthers fall to 12-11-2, which leaves them fifth in the Atlantic. Jaromir Jagr and defenseman Jason Demers were the other Panthers with three shots.
Dec 3 - 10:46 PM

Kyle Rau and Dylan McIlrath will be scratched against the Senators on Saturday.

Through 16 games thus far the 24-year-old Rau has posted just three points with 15 shots and 16 hits. Which unfortunately just isn't enough to be considered productive for fantasy purposes.
Dec 3 - 5:30 PM

Shawn Thornton will get his fifth game of the season on Saturday against Ottawa.

This will be career game number 660 for the veteran pugilist. He's offered nothing in the way of fantasy production this season, but the Senators do have that Chris Neil guy. Maybe they'll induce a few sparks.
Dec 3 - 3:34 PM

Roberto Luongo will get the start in Saturday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

This will be Luongo's third straight start. He's only allowed one goal in each of his previous two games and he's 1-0-1 during that time. The veteran will enter tonight's game with a 9-6-1 record, a 2.04 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage.

Keith Yandle picked up an assist in Florida's 2-1 overtime win against Detroit on Thursday night.

He had the primary helper during a 4-on-4 goal by Jason Demers. Yandle has one goal and 11 assists in 24 games with the Panthers.
Dec 2 - 8:16 AM

Aleskander Barkov's overtime winner Thursday night against Detroit gave interim coach Tom Rowe his first win with the Panthers.

Put it in the books, folks. Barkov hadn't scored since the second game of the season on Oct. 15th, so this was as special tally for everyone involved. He now has 15 points in 24 games.
Dec 2 - 1:44 AM

Reilly Smith picked up his eighth point of the season during Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.

Smith has four goals and assists through 24 games thus far, which is well off pace to match the 50 points he missed last year.
Dec 2 - 1:42 AM

Jonathan Marchessault's point streak is now up to three games.

Marchessault's helper now gives him a goal and three points during the streak. He has 10 goals and 19 points this season, matching his career total coming into the season.
Dec 2 - 1:40 AM

Jason Demers snapped his nine-game goal drought during Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

Demers now has three goals and nine points in 24 games. He has consecutive 20-plus point campaigns, and is well on his way to adding another.
Dec 2 - 1:38 AM

Roberto Luongo outshined Petr Mrazek during Thursday's 2-1 overtime win over the Red Wings.

Luongo stopped 20 of 21 shots, including all six asked of him during of him on the kill. Through 16 games this season the league's most-veteran netminder has a record of 9-6-1 with a 2.04 GAA and .930 save percentage.
