Denis Malgin has been recalled by Florida.

Malgin recorded one assist in three games for Springfield of the AHL during his minor-league stint. It's uncertain at this time if he'll get to make his season debut Tuesday night or if he's just an extra body for the trip to Philadelphia.

Colton Sceviour was injured in Saturday's loss to Pittsburgh.

Sceviour exited the match late in the third period after he took an elbow to the head from Pittsburgh's Patric Hornqvist. A penalty was not called on the play.
Oct 15 - 5:17 PM

Vincent Trocheck has recorded a point in all of Florida's first four games this season.

Trocheck continued that pace with an assist in the Panthers' 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday. Trocheck has recorded 53 and 54 points in each of his previous two campaigns and he's a good bet to finish around there again if he stays healthy.
Oct 15 - 5:29 AM

Evgenii Dadonov registered two assists in a 4-3 loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Dadonov has a goal and five points in four contests this season. He emerged as a star in the KHL and so far it seems he'll be able to make a smooth transition back to the NHL. While he is a bit of a higher risk player, there is the potential that he could end up with 50-60 points in 2017-18.
Oct 15 - 5:27 AM

James Reimer made 29 saves against the Pittsburgh Penguins in a 4-3 loss Saturday night.

For the second time this season, Reimer allowed four goals in a start. The netminder was already in a difficult situation facing the Pittsburgh Penguins, armed to the teeth with offensively-minded goal scorers.

Jonathan Huberdeau scored two goals, but the Florida Panthers were vanquished by the Pittsburgh Penguins by a score of 4-3 on Saturday night.

Huberdeau looks ready to contribute to the Florida Panthers offense. He now has three goals and five points in four games for Florida. He lost a great chunk of the 2016-17 season thanks to injury, and as a result he only scored 10 times. If healthy, Huberdeau will surely surpass that total.

Owen Tippett will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Tippett was drafted by Florida 10th overall in the last NHL Entry Draft. He still hasn't played a game this season which could indicate that they're ready to send him back to his junior team. MacKenzie Wagner will also serve as a scratch for the Panthers.

James Reimer will get the start in Saturday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Reimer won his only appearance of the season, but he allowed four goals in the process. He'll need to be at his best against a dangerous Penguins team.
Oct 14 - 6:42 PM

Connor Brickley has a three-game point streak to start the 2017-18 campaign.

Brickley has produced one goal and three assists over that span. He collected two helpers in Thursday's 5-2 win over St. Louis. Brickley has meshed nicely with Nick Bjugstad and Jared McCann on Florida's third line.
Oct 13 - 8:47 AM

Ian McCoshen got his first NHL goal in a 5-2 win over St. Louis on Thursday night.

He got the Panthers on the board early in the second period shortly after Paul Stastny gave the Blues a 1-0 lead. McCoshen has five hits, two blocks and one point through three matches this year.
Oct 13 - 8:43 AM

Jared McCann had a goal and a helper Thursday in a 5-2 victory versus St. Louis.

McCann scored a power-play marker for his second goal of the season. He already has generated four points in three outings after he had just seven points in 29 appearances with the Panthers in 2016-17. McCann has been playing as Florida's third-line center between Nick Bjugstad and Connor Brickley.
Oct 13 - 8:39 AM

Nick Bjugstad notched a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over St. Louis on Thursday night.

Bjugstad has four points in three games this season thanks to a pair of multi-point performances. He only had 14 points in 54 outings last year due to injuries, but it's been a strong start to 2017-18 for the 25-year-old forward.
Oct 13 - 8:35 AM

Roberto Luongo turned aside 37 of 39 shots in Thursday's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Panthers found themselves down 1-0 after Paul Stastny scored a power play goal in the first period, but they responded by scoring five in a row. Luongo now has a 1-1-0 record with a 3.06 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage this season. He and James Reimer have each started two games this season. Don't be surprised if the two split starts for most of the season. His fantasy upside is limited.
Oct 12 - 11:16 PM

Aaron Ekblad picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

St. Louis scored the game's first goal, but the Panthers answered with five unanswered goals the rest of the way. Ekblad helped set up Jared McCann's first-period goal on the power play to make it 3-1 Panthers. He also added one of his own in the second frame to extend his team's lead to 4-1. Ekblad finished the game with a plus-3 rating and three shots on goal in 20:20 of ice time. He now has one goal and two assists in three games this season.
Oct 12 - 10:54 PM

Owen Tippett will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the St. Louis Blues.

Tippett was the 10th overall pick in last June's NHL Entry Draft. He had a terrific training camp, which led to Florida keeping him. The 18-year-old still hasn't gotten into lineup though. That could indicate that they're getting ready to send him back to junior in the near future. Denis Malgin and MacKenzie Weegar will also be scratched for this one.
