The 2011 season that saw the Florida Panthers win the Southeast Division seems like an eternity ago for fans. So was 2012 an aberration or the beginning of another collection of lost seasons for Florida’s NHL franchise?
Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers and fellow finalists Brendan Gallagher of the Montreal Canadiens and Brandon Saad of the Chicago Blackhawks are among those chosen for the NHL’s All-Rookie team Saturday.
The Florida Panthers entered the 2013 season full of hope. But between injuries and other problems, the Panthers finished with the worst record in hockey. Still, if it wasn’t for bad luck, the Panthers may not have any luck at all.
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.
The Buffalo Sabres are hoping a two-game winning streak is a sign of better things to come. Nathan Gerbe scored his first two goals of the season, Ryan Miller made 38 saves and the Sabres beat the struggling Florida Panthers 4-3 in a shootout Thursday night.
The Florida Panthers continued their spiral Sunday with a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of the Boston Bruins, who have lost only two games on the season.
Jonathan Huberdeau is getting quite comfortable in Philadelphia. Huberdeau and Peter Mueller each had two goals to help the Florida Panthers snap a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Flyers on Thursday night.
Blown out at home last month by the Flyers, the Florida Panthers would not be embarrassed twice. Jonathon Huberdeau and Peter Mueller both scored goals in a shootout to lead the Panthers to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
When Alex Kovalev made his NHL debut, his current team, the Florida Panthers, and star rookie Jonathan Huberdeau didn’t even exist. But at 39, Kovalev is helping to bridge the gap from the veterans to Huberdeau, 19.
The Florida Panthers will lift a division championship banner to the rafters soon, but if they are to hang another one and make it deeper into the playoffs it all may rest on the shoulders of a former top draft pick.
