Fantasy Impact: After a tough start surrendering four goals on just 27 shots Tuesday, Sergei will look to bounce-back and get another win under his belt.

Joe Thornton scored a goal in the Panthers' 5-4 victory over the Capitals on Tuesday. He had one goal on one shot and added two hits in 11:42 of ice-time.

Fantasy Impact: Father time is undefeated. Jumbo Joe in his age 42 season now has two goals and two assists in 12 games played. He should probably hang them up but just seems to keep finding gigs holding back a roster spot from someone who could excel. Thornton had his best season 20 years ago when he registered 127 points.

Patric Hornqvist collected his eighth assist of the season in a 5-4 win over Washington. He also contributed four SOG and three hits in 15 minutes on the ice.

Fantasy Impact: Hornqvist is now up to 11 points in 22 games this season. Even though he plays for a potent offense, he currently is not consistent enough to be a starter. He is better left on the waiver wire.

MacKenzie Weegar collected his 12th assist of the season in a 5-4 Panthers win. He finished with a +2 rating, one SOG, three hits, and two blocks.

Fantasy Impact: Weegar has contributed at least one point in four of his last five games. He continues to stuff the stat sheet with assists, blocks, and hits. He should be in starter consideration for fantasy managers.

Sam Reinhart tallied his fifth goal of the season to push the Panthers past the Capitals.

Fantasy Impact: Reinhart now has 13 points in 22 games this season. While he is not a must-start, he is still part of a potent Panthers offense and can be considered an option depending on their matchup.

Jonathan Huberdeau tallied three assists on the night, including two on the Panthers final two goals, to complete a 5-4 comeback win.

Fantasy Impact: Huberdeau continues to produce at a point-per-game pace for the Panthers. He now has 23 points in 22 games and is a must-start in fantasy lineups.

Sam Bennett scored his eighth goal of the season in the Panthers 5-4 win over the Capitals. Bennett also had four SOG and six hits on the night.

Fantasy Impact: Bennett has been a solid contributor for the Panthers this season. He now has four points in his last five games and should be rostered.

Aaron Ekblad tallied three assists in the Panthers 5-4 win over Washington. He finished with a +2 rating, five SOG, one hit, and two blocks in 26 minutes of ice time.

Fantasy Impact: Ekblad had two assists on the final two Panthers goals to complete a 4-1 comeback over the Capitals. His three points move him to 20 points and an impressive +18 rating on the season. Ekblad should be locked into fantasy lineups.

Brandon Montour had two assists, helping the Panthers demolish the visiting Islanders, 6-1.

Fantasy Impact: Montour has two goals and seven assists in 16 games. If he maintains this pace, it would be the most points in a season he's produced in his entire career.

Luostarinen scored the goal in overtime when a pass attempt bounced off the Capitals' Tom Wilson's stick and found the net.

Chris Driedger stopped 35-of-38 shots during Florida's 4-1 loss to Detroit.

Acciari followed up his three goal game against the Senators Monday night with a natural hat trick against the Stars on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Despite his recent goal scoring steak, Noel Acciari shouldn't be counted on as a reliable fantasy option going forward. Acciari has 11 goals — six of which have come in the last two games — and 14 points in 31 games this season.

Dadonov has 7 goals and 13 points, in 15 games to start the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact: Evgenii Dadonov has been a nice addition to the Florida Panthers. The former KHL star had 28 goals, and 65 points in 2017-18 and 28 goals and 70 points in 2018-19. Fantasy owners should expect a stat line this season from the 30-year-old winger.

Trocheck should be considered day-to-day right now. The Panthers next game is on Thursday against the Flames.

Fantasy Impact: Vincent Trocheck has 6 points, in 8 games so far in 2019-20. When healthy Trocheck can be relied upon to score 50-plus points a season, making him a good option for fantasy owners.

Mike Hoffman was moved to Panther's top line during Tuesday's loss to the Hurricanes. Hoffman remained along side Aleksander Barkov and Jonathan Huberdeau in Thursday's practice. (Source: Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel)

Fantasy Impact: Mike Hoffman is off to an excellent start to the 2019-20 season, 4 goals, and 6 points in 3 games. If Hoffman can remain with Barkov and Huberdeau, that can only improve his fantasy outlook this season. We will see if Joel Quenneville keeps the trio together, the Panthers take on the Sabers tonight.
