Florida Panthers 2013 draft review


Heading into the 2013 NHL Draft, the Florida Panthers had one of the deeper and more talented groups of prospects in the NHL, including the recent Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau. With eight picks, including the second overall, the team needed to address several deficiencies in their depth chart, the most notable being a center to run the first-line offense and distribute the puck to Huberdeau.

1st Round, 2nd Overall
Height: 6'2 Weight: 172

A junior-aged player excelling in the elite Finnish league is a rarity. Even rarer is a 17-year-old center not only making a team, but clearly outpacing, out-thinking, and outscoring players in his country's top league, many of whom have 10 years or more of professional hockey seniority.… read more

Excited about all our late round guys, obviously along with Barkov and McCoshen. They all seem to be making the most out of camp and seem like guys who could find a way to contribute to the big club eventually.

I really think Dale is thinking about every position and every role a team needs to succeed, which is quite refreshing to see.
