Samuel Montembeault Brings Goaltending Depth to Panthers

On Friday, July 15, goaltender Samuel Montembeault took to the rink at the Florida Panthers’ IceDen. In the midst of his second development camp, he skated out to his crease, donned in a red jersey for the team’s traditional end-of-camp, intrasquad scrimmage. He prepped himself in his cage. The puck dropped at center ice. And then, magic. For 23:30 of a 25-minute half, the former...

Rapid Fire: with Panthers center Nick Bjugstad

With Emma Mason Who did you model your game after? I was always tall and always skinny, so I liked watching players like Ryan Getzlaf and other bigger guys. Blake Wheeler is a Minnesota kid like me, so I watched him when I was younger. There are a lot of guys that I’ve watched in the league that I take little things from, and I definitely keep learning stuff, especially being able...

Video: Team USA’s Charlie McAvoy obliterates Team Canada’s Lawson Crouse

Exhibition games are supposed to be fun and slow paced. It doesn’t make for great TV most of the time as it just ends up being background noise for whatever else is going on. We saw recently in the KHL how serious some exhibition games can be, but when it comes to USA vs. Canada exhibitions games, all bets are off. When Team USA’s Charlie McAvoy (recently drafted by the Bruins...

Scoring the new Florida Panthers look

Those who have been paying a very close attention to the designs of NHL teams probably noticed plenty of makeovers to knock out the garish 90’s looks. The San Jose Sharks, Vancouver Canucks, and the Dallas Stars are prime examples of teams that vastly improved their design over the past 15 or so years. The Florida Panthers, meanwhile, kept their looks relatively constant since...

Panthers sign James Reimer

The Florida Panthers have made what you might think is an odd free agency day signing. Goaltender James Reimer has joined the Cats on a five-year, $17 million deal.

Jaromir Jagr delivers sandwich to paparazzo outside his home

I guess we can call this “killing them with kindness.” One consequence of being famous is that your privacy can be severely violated. And no matter how wrong that may be, it’s something that’s not going away anytime soon. For Jaromir Jagr, he reacted a bit better than most after seeing a persistent photographer waiting for hours outside his home in his native Czech Republic...

Jaromir Jagr takes home 2016 Bill Masterton trophy during NHL Awards

If you’re like me and grew up in the 1990s, chances are you are about as shocked as anyone to see Jaromir Jagr still playing NHL-level hockey. After all, he is the only player still left from your copy of the classic video game, ‘NHL ’94’. Jagr, the seemingly ageless wonder, proved he still belonged in the league with a crazy 2015-16 season for the Florida Panthers. The...

Report: Dave Bolland fails physical, won’t be bought out by Panthers

There appears to be a snafu in the Florida Panthers attempt to buy-out disgruntled forward Dave Bolland. The Panthers were expected to cut ties with Bolland and shed the memory of his awful five-year, $27.5 million contract in order to gain a small amount of cap relief. Apparently, their efforts at buying out Bolland have failed. Luke Fox of Sportsnet.ca reports Bolland won’t...
