Yandle picked up an assist in Thursday's 2-1 shootout loss to the Islanders. Now with 61 points on the season, Yandle has bested his previous career-high mark set back in 2010-11. He is also holding firm in third place league-wide for power-play points with 39 -- making him the first defenseman to surpass 35 points on the man advantage since Nicklas Lindstrom in 2010-11.
Yandle ended Tuesday's game a minus-3 as the Canadiens won 6-1. Despite a minus-19 season rating, Yandle is not even in the bottom two on the Panthers for plus-minus. Mike Matheson (minus-27) and Mike Hoffman (minus-25) both "lead" in that category. Yandle is having a great season offensively with 58 points in 77 games, but with 38 of those points coming on the power play, he has been hit hard into the negatives.
Yandle picked up an assist during a 4-2 win over the Coyotes on Thursday. The helper gives Yandle 58 points on the season, setting a single-season record for a Panthers defenseman. He also broke the franchise record for power-play points by any skater with 38 points in that special teams situation. Yandle is one goal or assist behind his career-best offensive season set in 2010-11.
Yandle registered a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Sharks. The helper gives Yandle 55 points (nine goals, 46 assists) in 70 games, just four shy of his career high from 2010-11. He has picked up 35 power-play points this season, tied for second in the league with Steven Stamkos in that category. The blueliner may have an unsightly minus-15 rating, but the hefty point production more than makes up for it.
Yandle racked up two power-play assists in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Bruins. The dependable rearguard was instrumental in helping the Cats jump out to an early 2-0 lead, but the B's would answer back by accounting for four of the game's final five tallies. Florida almost assuredly won't be making the playoffs, but Yandle's rigid work ethic is a staple of his game, so expect consistent production from him down the stretch. Yandle needs only six more points in the remaining 15 contests to reach a career-high 60, and he's already accrued a personal-best seven goals and 34 points with the man advantage.
