Florida Panthers' Prospect Pool Is Ranked The Best." Again!


For the second consecutive ranking, the Florida Panthers’ prospects have been ranked No. 1 by Hockey’s Future.  A tremendous accomplishment by the organization, showing the ability of the scouting staff to select such talented, and the depth of talent that these players possess.  It’s important to note as well that the Panthers have been among the Top 4 NHL organizations in the last four bi-annual rankings.

When you take a look at some of the youngsters that will potentially be joining the “big club” in the next couple seasons, you get the feeling that the hockey team is headed for bigger and better things, and a continued improvement on this past season, which was a drought ending playoff birth.  Players like Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad, Quinton Howden as the up and coming forward, and Colby Robak and Alex Petrovic on the blue line.  And of course everyone is anticipating seeing Jacob Markstrom as the number one goaltender at some point in the next season or two.  All in all, this is an outstanding crop of players.

Here is the actual article for your review.

During the first week of July fans will be able to see many of the Panther’s top prospects at the teams Development Camp that will be held at Saveology.com Iceplex during the first week of July.  We’ll be announcing the details as they come available to us in the next few weeks.

Hard to believe that the season is almost over with the Stanley Cup Final underway, however with the anticipation of our youngsters at the Development Camp, and another draft coming up, to go along with another roind of free agency, the excitment will be building shortly.
