3rd Defensive Leading Scorer: Jason Demers
Jason Demers had a great first half of season with the Panthers last year before sliding off the score sheet for most of the second half of the season. Demers played all but one of all the 82 games and finished with 9 goals and 19 assists totaling 28 points.
While it appeared that the Panthers were shopping Demers around this offseason, it seems as if he will once again suit up for the Panthers this season. If Demers wants the trade rumors to stop, he will need to once again have a great season, and prove that he deserves his big salary. Demers should have a similar season to last year if he gets top 4 minutes.
Prediction: 7 goals,17 assists and 24 points.
