Panthers seemed to have a great draft (though they had a ton of picks):

1st round: LW/C Jonathan Huberdeau - future franchise forward (once he adds muscle)
2nd round: RW/C Rocco Grimaldi - looking better this yr and has the talent to be a top 6 forward
2nd round: D Rasmus Bengtsson - long term project d-man but has good size
3rd round: C Vincent Trocheck - having a breakout season and looked great in WJC this yr
3rd round: RW/LW Logan Shaw - another prospect having a great season and plays an NHL type game
3rd round: D Jonathan Racine - was one of the best physically in the draft (topped many categories at Combine) and has been good since traded to Moncton
3rd round: LW/C Kyle Rau - has been impressive right after being drafted and continues to score playing alongside Nick Bjugstad. Doesn't play as small as his height/weight suggest
5th round: RW/LW Yaroslav Kosov - had a great WJC and showed he can play strong 2-way hockey with best in the world
6th round: D Eddie Wittchow - another long term project but probably just depth for the farm. Still playing decent at Univ. of Wisconsin this yr as freshman
7th round: LW/RW Iiro Pakarinen - drafted as overager but hasnt been decent in limited role in SM-Liiga. Does have size to play as a bottom 6 forward in the NHL already (6'1" 200 lbs)
