Jonathan Huberdeau continues to impress at Florida Panthers training camp.
Huberdeau, who has played well in nearly all the National Hockey League pre-season games he has taken part in, scored a goal last night andwas named third star in the Panthers 4-3 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars.
The Saint John Sea Dogs forward scored a 5-on-3 power play marker at 16:08 of the third period with assists going to David Booth and Dmitri Kulikov. Huberdeau finished the contest a -1, registered five shots on goal and spent a total of 15 minutes and 35 seconds on the ice.
Here’s Huberdeau speaking after the game:
Florida’s final pre-season game is Thursday in Dallas.
It’s gotten to the point where it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see Huberdeau start the year in Florida. The Panthers open the regular season on October 8 in New York against the Islanders.
