This past season for the Florida Panthers was certainly one to forget. We finished with a 29-45-8 record, which was good for second worst in the league, our leading point scorer put up a whopping 38 points setting a NHL record for fewest points by a teams points leader, and we went through two coaches. Just thinking about last season makes me sick.
But there were some bright spots that came out of the torturous season. We got to see rookie Aleksander Barkov flash his world-class skill, we watched the rise of some of our top prospects including Nick Bjugstad and Vincent Trochek, and we witnessed the return of Roberto Luongo after a mid-season trade with Vancouver.
While scouring through NHL.com I found video recaps of every teams season in 60(ish) seconds and I thought it was pretty cool. Take a look at some of the more memorable big hits, sweet moves, and miraculous saves that came out of the Panthers season:
If that doesn’t make you hockey want hockey back I don’t know what will. This upcoming season will be much brighter for sure as our roster is much improved thanks to a bunch of free agent signings. Unfortunately,the Panther first game is still 68 days away.
