Florida Panthers

Evgenii Dadonov also had a goal and an assist on Friday. It was a tough weekend for the Panthers as they lost 3-2 to the Sabers Friday, and 3-2 to the Islanders Saturday, both losses were in the shootout.

Fantasy Impact: The former KHL star has been a great addition to the Florida Panthers. Dadonov has scored 28 goals in each of past two NHL seasons, to go along with point totals of 65 and 70. The thirty-year-old winger should have no trouble providing fantasy owners similar production in 2019-20. Dadonov has 5 points in 5 games this season.

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.

Barkov assisted on 2 of the Panthers 3 goals, as the Florida fell 6-3 to the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.

Sergei Bobrovsky allowed 4 goals, on 14 shots, on Tuesday night. Bobrovsky was pulled after only one period, as the Panthers fell to the Hurricanes 6-3.

Fantasy Impact: This was obviously a night to forget for the Florida Panthers top goaltender. Bobrovsky has had an up and down start to his Panthers career, 4.57 GAA, .859 save percentage in 3 starts. But there is no reason for fantasy owners to worry, Bobrovsky is one of the NHL's better goalies.

Huberdeau had 2 assists in Saturday's win against the Lightning, both coming on Mike Hoffman power play goals.

Fantasy Impact: Jonathan Huberdeau enjoyed a break-out 2018-19 season, with 30 goals and 92 points — which topped his previous career-high of 27 goals and 69 points set in 2017-18. The former third-overall pick has 2 points in 2 games this season.

Trocheck had a goal and an assist in the season opening loss to the Lightning.

Fantasy Impact: Vincent Trocheck is coming off an injury shortened 2018-19 season, where he managed 34 points in 55 games. This was something of a disappointment following a career year in 2017-18, where he put up 31 goals and 75 points. This is a nice start for fantasy owners hoping to see Trocheck return to his 2017-18 form.
