  • Bjugstad delivered an assist in Monday's 2-1 overtime road win over the Red Wings. The top-six pivot was the primary setup man on defenseman Mike Matheson's dagger in bonus hockey. Bjugstad's now mirrored his totals from last season (seven goals, seven assists) but he's done it in 24 fewer games. Hopefully you bought low on him ahead of this season.

  • Bjugstad recorded a goal and the shootout-winner during Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Maple Leafs. The 25-year-old center is bouncing back well with five goals and 10 points in 21 games to start the year, giving him enough fantasy value to merit consideration in deeper formats.

  • Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Snaps 12-game goal drought
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bjugstad scored Florida's only goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Devils. The goal snapped a 12-game goal drought for the big center. Bjugstad was supposed to be a more prolific scorer than he's shown with the kitties, but at 25, he probably is what he is. And that's a 35-40 point player who has a tendency to struggle on his own side of the puck.

  • Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Picks up helper Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bjugstad collected a helper in Thursday's blowout win over the Ducks. It tells you something about Bjugstad's current role when the Panthers score eight times and he only walks away with one assist. The 25-year-old does still have six points in nine games, but he's been bumped down to the third line and had been held off the scoresheet in all but one of his last five outings entering Thursday. The sniper has actually been playing quite well this season, but the coach doesn't seem to want to give him many minutes. It's a situation worth monitoring, as Bjugstad is a fantasy weapon when he's in the top six and finding twine consistency.

  • Bjugstad scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's home win against the Blues. Bjugstad pocketed a nifty, top-shelf goal on Jake Allen late in the third period, giving the Panthers an insurmountable 5-1 lead. The 6-foot-6 forward now has two goals and two assists in his first three games. However, the 25-year-old is averaging a career-low ice time of just 12:38, so this early production may not be sustainable.
