Yesterday, it was announced that Panthers’ goaltending prospect Jacob Markstrom was named the AHL Player of the Week last week.(Source: Florida Panthers)
Currently playing for the Panthers’ AHL affiliate, San Antonio Rampage, Markstrom becomes only the seventh player in Rampage history to take home Player of the Week honors. (Source: Florida Panthers)
He accomplished this by going 4-0-0 with wins over the league-leading Abbotsford Heat and Oklahoma City Barons to name a few. (Source: AHL)
Even better, Markstrom allowed only seven goals while facing 137 shots to lead the Rampage during that four game win streak. (Source: AHL)
He’ll be presented this award at an upcoming Rampage home game. (Source: AHL)
For the Panthers, this could pose an interesting decision if there happens to be a shortened season as they have both Scott Clemmensen and Jose Theodore under contract. However, it’s a good problem to have a lot of capable, high-quality goalies! It means the Panthers will be contenders for many years to come!
Anyways, we here at “The Rat Trick” extend our congratulations to Markstrom! Now let’s keep the streak going Rampage!!!
