SUNRISE (CBSMiami) – Florida Panthers Center Jonathan Huberdeau is only in his first season in the NHL, but he’s already won his first award as a member of the team.

Huberdeau was named the NHL’s Rookie of the Month for February for his stellar play despite the Panthers’ losses continuing to pile up.

The 19-year-old Huberdeau leads all NHL rookies in goals scored (8) and shots (57), while also ranking second among rookies in points (13). During the month of February, Huberdeau played in 13 games and scored six goals with three assists while averaging 17 TOI/game.

Huberdeau also recorded his career best game with four points in Philadelphia on February 21 including scoring the game-winning goal on a penalty shot in Florida’s 5-2 win over the Flyers.

The rapidly-developing rookie currently leads the Panthers with eight goals and is third on the team with 13 points in 20 games played this year. Florida is currently fourth in the Southeast Division and has only 17 points on the season with an 8-12-1 record.
