Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo faced 50 shots in Saturday's shootout loss to the Predators.
Insight: He played very well, stopping 48 of those shots, but ultimately fell in the shootout. Luongo has been somewhat of a surprise this season, and is now 6-4-5 with a 2.36 GAA and .926 save percentage.
Nick Bjugstad, C11/23/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad scored a goal during Saturday's loss to Nashville.
Insight: It was his seventh goal of the season. Bjugstad also had three shots on goal and a +1 rating on the night. He now has 11 points in 18 games, and is turning into a decent option for owners.
Aleksander Barkov, C11/20/2014 6:58:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Alexsander Barkov will return to the ice on Thursday against the Sharks.
Insight: Barkov missed the team's last game because of the flu. The 19-year-old has two goals and three points through 13 games this season.
Roberto Luongo, G11/19/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo was pulled in Tuesday's loss to Los Angeles.
Insight: He made 21 saves on 25 shots before being pulled to start the third period. Al Montoya took over and faced only two shots, allowing one goal. Luongo still has decent numbers with a 5-4-4 record and a 2.45 GAA and .921 save percentage.
Jussi Jokinen, LW11/19/2014 10:15:00 AM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen scored his second goal of the season during Tuesday's loss to the Kings.
Insight: He also had five shots on goal, and while he has not scored many goals, Jokinen does have 12 points in 16 games this season.
Roberto Luongo, G11/14/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo took a shootout loss Friday against the Islanders.
Insight: He made 30 saves on 33 shots, but his record dropped to 5-3-4. Luongo is still a decent option in net for owners.
Brian Campbell, D11/14/2014 10:24:00 PM
Description: Panthers Brian Campbell scored his first goal of the season in Friday's shootout loss to the Islanders.
Insight: Campbell has only four points on the season, and should be considered a relevant fantasy option.
Aleksander Barkov, C11/11/2014 10:15:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Alexsander Barkov scored his second goal of the season on Tuesday against the Sharks.
Insight: Maybe that will get him going. He has just two goals and no assists in 11 games to start the 2014-2015 season.
Roberto Luongo, G11/11/2014 10:11:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo allowed just one goal on 22 shots on Tuesday against the Sharks.
Insight: Luongo and the Panthers were on, a rare sight, scoring the first four goals of the game. Luongo did not yield a goal until halfway through the third period. He is now 5-3-3 on the season.
Aaron Ekblad, D11/9/2014 10:12:00 AM
Description: Panthers rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad had two assists in Saturday's loss to Calgary.
Insight: The rookie has held his own early on, and now has six points on the season, but a -3 rating as well. Ekblad should continue to progress all season long.
Scottie Upshall, RW11/8/2014 6:12:00 PM
Description: Florida winger Scottie Upshall was a bright spot in the team's loss to Calgary on Saturday afternoon.
Insight: He had two goals and an assist, along with four shots on goal and one penalty minute. Upshall still only has five points on the season, but after a game like this, owners need to monitor his progress.
Roberto Luongo, G11/6/2014 10:04:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo allowed four goals on 30 shots on Thursday against the Flyers.
Insight: That is just a .867 save percentage for Luongo. His save percentage for the season is a lot better than that, but overall he has been disappointing for fantasy owners because of his 4-3-3 record.
Roberto Luongo, G11/4/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo stopped 23-of-25 shots, in Tuesday's overtime loss to Boston.
Insight: Luongo had won his previous two games, but is now 4-3-2 on the season. He has played well overall, however.
Sean Bergenheim, LW11/4/2014 1:59:00 PM
Description: Florida left wing Sean Bergenheim (lower body) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston.
Insight: Bergenheim has two goals and an assist this season on 17 shots.
Aleksander Barkov, C11/4/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Alexsander Barkov (lower body) could return to the lineup Tuesday.
Insight: He took part in the morning skate around. Barkov has just one point in eight games this season.
Jonathan Huberdeau, C11/4/2014 1:51:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau will not play Tuesday due to the flu, according to Florida Panthers beat reporter George Richards.
Insight: Huberdeau could join the team for the next game in Philadelphia. He has a goal and an assist in eight games.
Aaron Ekblad, D11/2/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Panthers rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad scored his first career goal in Florida's 2-1 victory over Philadelphia on Saturday.
Insight: Ekblad scored on the power play at the 15:38 mark of the third period to make it 2-0. The goal ended up the game-winner. Ekblad had one goal and two assists.
Roberto Luongo, G11/1/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo nearly had a shutout on Saturday.
Insight: He allowed the Flyers first goal with under eight seconds left in the third period. That might frustrate fantasy owners, but he still stopped 36-of-37 chances and captured the victory.
Roberto Luongo, G10/30/2014 10:11:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo played well in Thursday's win over Arizona.
Insight: He stopped 31-of-32 shots on goal, and has been a bright spot for Florida this season. Luongo is now 3-2-2.
Scott Clemmensen, G10/28/2014 9:45:00 PM
Description: Devils backup goalie Scott Clemmensen played the third period against the Penguins on Tuesday and allowed three goals.
Insight: He replaced Corey Schneider who posted a .783 save percentage through two periods. Clemmensen was even worse, allowing three goals on seven shots. Two of the goals came on the power play.
Roberto Luongo, G10/26/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo played very well, but ultimately fell to the Coyotes on Saturday night.
Insight: He stopped 39-of-41 shots on goal in a 2-1 loss. Luongo is now 2-2-2 with a 2.57 GAA and a .917 save percentage. He is clearly the top option in Florida, but his wins will be limited, as the team will struggle to stay consistent.
Roberto Luongo, G10/22/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo picked up his second win of the season in Tuesday's overtime victory.
Insight: He stopped 30-0f-33 shots on goal, and help defeat the Avalanche 4-3. Luongo is now 2-2-1 with a 2.72 GAA and a .906 save percentage.
Brad Boyes, C10/18/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Panthers forward Brad Boyes scored with under five minutes to go in the third period on Saturday to earn a point for Florida.
Insight: The Captials led the game, 1-0, for over 52 minutes in the game, but Boyes power play goal sent the contest to overtime. The Panthers lost in the shootout, but still earned a point.
Roberto Luongo, G10/17/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo earned his first shutout of the season.
Insight: It was also his and the team's first win of 2014-15. Luongo stopped all 26 shots, but will continue to be a risky play in regards to wins, as Florida is not a projected playoff team.
Roberto Luongo, G10/13/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo allowed just one goal against the Senators on Monday and lost, 1-0.
Insight: Luongo stopped 22-of-23 shots for a .957 save percentage, but it was not enough to lead Florida to victory. The Senators crashed the net hard, and Luongo looked shaken up a few times, but he played the entire game besides when Florida went with an empty net.
Jussi Jokinen, LW10/11/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen is enjoying his time on the team's top line with Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau according to Panthers.com.
Insight: Jokinen was one of the better skaters on the ice in Florida's season opener and effectively crashed the net. If there is a hole on your bench, Jokinen is worth considering.
Jonathan Huberdeau, C10/9/2014 10:30:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau scored a goal to send a game against the Lightning into overtime on Thursday.
Insight: Huberdeau scored on a wrister at the 9:16 mark of the third period. That goal tied the game, 2-2. The Lightning won on the power play in overtime. Huberdeau finished with a plus-one rating and three shots.
Brian Campbell, D9/26/2014 8:15:00 PM
Description: Panthers Brian Campbell is the team's best defenseman, but he is not a worthwhile fantasy player.
Insight: Campbell logs heavy minutes but does not take many shots and is very disciplined, so he does very little to help fantasy teams. He might be able to score some on the power play, but Dmitry Kulikov and Aaron Ekblad are better offensive options.
Tomas Fleischmann, LW9/26/2014 8:10:00 PM
Description: Panthers winger Tomas Fleischmann is a worthy bench player for your fantasy hockey team this season.
Insight: Fleischmann had an awful 2013-2014 season with 28 points, which is his lowest in seven years. In his first season in Florida, he scored 27 goals and 34 assists, both career highs. We don't expect him to get very close to his 27 goal total from three years ago, but 60 points is not out of the question.
Jonathan Huberdeau, C9/26/2014 8:01:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Jonathan Huberdeau is very familiar with Florida's new head coach Gerald Gallant.
Insight: Huberdeau had an amazing junior career while playing under Gallant with the Saint John Sea Dogs. After winning the Calder Trophy in 2012-2013, Huberdeau struggled somewhat with the poor team performance last year. Look for Huberdeau to rebound under his old coach and with a pleathora of young talent around him.
Nick Bjugstad, C9/26/2014 7:56:00 PM
Description: Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad became the first rookie to lead the team in scoring last year.
Insight: Bjugstad had 16 goals and 22 assists in 76 games this season. His 38 points was also the lowest amount to ever lead a NHL team in an 82-game season. We see him increasing those totals this year, but it is unlikely he leads the team in scoring again with a healthy Aleksander Barkov and the addition of Jussi Jokinen.
Brad Boyes, C9/26/2014 7:49:00 PM
Description: Panthers forward Brad Boyes feels much more comfortable at training camp this season than he did a year ago according to Miami Herald.
Insight: Boyes was stuck in a hotel in training camp last year, and he also said it was nice to see familiar faces rather than worried about fitting into a new locker room. He led the team with 21 goals a season ago and could do so again this year.
Aleksander Barkov, C9/26/2014 7:38:00 PM
Description: Panthers center Alexsander Barkov has the potential to score 30 goals this season.
Insight: Our projections have him scoring between 15 and 20, but his high upside makes him a good gamble in the middle rounds of the draft. Barkov is just 19 years old and how productive he is will depend greatly on how much the Panthers can improve under new head coach Gerald Gallant. Barkov will be the top-line center.
Jussi Jokinen, LW9/16/2014 7:44:00 PM
Description: Panthers winger Jussi Jokinen is playing alongside fellow Finn Aleksander Barkov in training camp.
Insight: As excited as we are about the 19-year-old Aleksander Barkov, Jokinen will not be as productive this year as he was a season ago while playing with Penguins star Evgeni Malkin. Last season, Jokinen scored 21 goals, most since 2009-2010, and 36 assists, most since 2005-2006. Expect more like 15 goals and 25-30 assists this year. Jokinen saw top-six minutes for the Penguins last season and finished with 21 goals and 57 points, both his most since 2009-10. However, he'll go from having Evgeni Malkin as his center to 21-year-old Nick Bjugstad, 18-year-old Aleksander Barkov or fellow free agent signee Dave Bolland.
Dave Bolland, C7/3/2014 1:11:00 PM
Description: The Panthers signed Dave Bolland to a five-year, $27.5 million contract on Tuesday.
Insight: It's a massive overpay for a player who isn't a top-line caliber center. Bolland suffered a severed tendon in his ankle last season and played just 23 games for Toronto.
Jussi Jokinen, LW7/3/2014 1:00:00 PM
Description: Jussi Jokinen will likely see a decrese in fantasy value after signing with the Florida Panthers Tuesday.
Insight: Jokinen saw top-six minutes for the Penguins last season and finished with 21 goals and 57 points, both his most since 2009-10. However, he'll go from having Evgeni Malkin as his center to 21-year-old Nick Bjugstad, 18-year-old Aleksander Barkov or fellow free agent signee Dave Bolland.
