    Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Staying productive

    MacKenzie Weegar picked up his third helper of the season in Friday's 2-1 win over the Predators.The assist came on the game-winning goal by Aleksander Barkov late in the second period. Weegar also recorded three shots, two hits and two blocks in the game, which kept the Florida Panthers undefeated in regulation so far this season. The 27-year-old remains a steady defensive presence on the Cats' top pairing. While his main role is allowing his defensive partner Aaron Ekblad to get more involved in the offense, Weegar is no slouch himself when he gets a chance to join the rush. Last season, he tallied seven goals and 18 points in 45 games.

    Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Snags first point

    MacKenzie Weegar got his first point of the season with an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win against the BlackhawksHead coach Joel Quenneville has given Weegar a role with Aaron Ekblad on the team's top defensive unit to start the season, and he's looked right at home. The 27-year-old showed flashes of promise last season but was hampered by multiple injuries that limited him to only 45 games. Weegar is unlikely to fill up the scoresheet -- he has only 42 points in 174 career games -- but he is likely to continue skating over 20 minutes a night as the Florida Panthers look to solve their defensive deficiencies.

    Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Secures three-year pact

    MacKenzie Weegar inked a three-year, $9.75 million deal with Florida on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.Weegar saw a huge uptick in ice time last season, as he averaged over 20 minutes per game for the first time in his three-year NHL career. The defender's offensive ceiling remains in the 20-25 point range, which is in part due to his lack of power-play opportunities, but his defensive capabilities could bolster Aaron Ekblad's numbers by allowing him to jump into the play more often.
