Top Brandon Montour News

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Three points including GWG

    Montour scored the game-winning goal on the power play and added two assists, one with the man advantage, in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Sabres.

    After helping to set up Florida's first two goals of the night less than three minutes apart in the first period, Montour wired a one-timer from the high slot midway through the third that found its way through traffic and past Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen. Montour has erupted for four multi-point performances in the last five games, racking up three goals and 10 points over that stretch, equaling his point total from his prior 30 contests.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Two points against Sens

    Montour produced a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Senators.

    His tally late in the second period gave the Panthers a 2-0 lead, and Montour then helped set up Anton Lundell for the OT winner. Montour has two goals and five points in the last two games, and he might be finding last season's form again after offseason shoulder surgery delayed his season debut until mid-November and led to a couple sluggish months -- through his first 25 games in 2023-24, the 29-year-old defenseman managed only one goal and seven points.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Explodes for three-point game

    Montour had an even-strength goal and two power-play assists in a 9-2 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.

    Montour scored the Panthers' first goal when his point shot deflected off Bolts' defender Emil Martinsen Lilleberg during the first period. Montour hasn't been able to replicate his outstanding 2022-23 season, but he does have four points in his last three games. He has also picked up nine of his 15 points on the man advantage. If he can build off Saturday's performance, Montour could be in store for a strong finish to the campaign.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Dishes two helpers

    Montour provided two assists, including one on the power play, in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    Montour assisted on second-period tallies by Matthew Tkachuk and Carter Verhaeghe. This outing snapped a four-game point drought for Montour, who had just five points over 13 appearances in December. The 29-year-old blueliner hasn't been anywhere near his 73-point pace from last season after missing the start of the campaign while recovering from shoulder surgery. He's up to eight points (four on the power play) with 51 shots on net, 20 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-1 rating through 22 appearances.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Gets first goal of season

    Montour scored a goal on five shots and added a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Oilers.

    Montour snapped a five-game point drought with his first goal of the season at 18:58 of the first period. It stood as the game-winner, his seventh such tally over the last three campaigns. The 29-year-old defenseman is off to a slow start following his return from shoulder surgery. He's picked up four points, 34 shots on net, 14 blocked shots, 11 hits and an even plus-minus rating through 14 appearances in a top-four role so far.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Off injured reserve

    Per the NHL media site, Montour (shoulder) was taken off injured reserve Friday and is expected to make his season debut versus Anaheim.

    Montour had an outstanding 2022-23 campaign with 16 goals, 57 assists, 242 shots on goal, 107 PIM, 93 blocked shots and 92 hits in 80 contests. Montour had six goals and nine points in eight playoff games last year before suffering his shoulder injury, but he was able to gut it out, picking up two goals and four points in his final 13 games of the Stanley Cup playoffs. He underwent offseason surgery but is finally healthy enough to return Friday.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Chance to play during road trip

    Montour (shoulder) might be ready to return during Florida's three-game road trip, according to Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site.

    Coach Paul Maurice mentioned Tuesday that Friday's contest versus Anaheim is a potential target for the returns of Montour and Aaron Ekblad (shoulder). Montour amassed 16 goals, 73 points, 107 PIM, 242 shots on net, 93 blocked shots and 92 hits in 80 games last season. He hasn't played during the 2023-24 campaign because of offseason shoulder surgery.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Practicing Monday

    Montour (shoulder) will be a full participant in practice Monday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Montour's currently on injured reserve but could return as early as Tuesday in San Jose. The 29-year-old has yet to make his season debut after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery. Once healthy, he'll slide back into a top-four role with a spot on the top power-play unit.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Back at practice ahead of road trip

    Montour (shoulder) will join the full Panthers team at practice Sunday and is expected to accompany the team on next week's road trip, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    He'll wear a non-contact jersey Sunday as he takes a big step forward in his recovery. Montour and Aaron Ekblad were initially expected to return to the lineup in mid-December following their offseason shoulder surgeries, but coach Paul Maurice indicated Saturday that both blueliners were ahead of schedule and could be back before the end of November.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Will miss time

    Montour (shoulder) doesn't have a definitive timeline to return, but general manager Bill Zito suggested the defenseman could be back between November and January, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    Montour's progression from shoulder surgery has gone as planned so far, but he still has a long way to go. The 29-year-old defenseman is expected to be a power-play option while serving in a top-four role once he is cleared to play. Zito added that Montour is likely closer to a return than Aaron Ekblad (shoulder), who is also recovering from surgery and multiple additional injuries from the Panthers' run to the Stanley Cup Finals.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Recovering from shoulder surgery

    It is unclear if Montour will be ready for the start of the 2023-24 season following offseason shoulder surgery, David Dwork of The Hockey News reports.

    With Aaron Ekblad also on the mend from shoulder surgery, the Panthers signed Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Niko Mikkola, Mike Reilly and Dmitry Kulikov on Saturday for some much-needed defensive depth. Montour racked up 16 goals, 73 points, 107 PIM and 242 shots on goal in 80 games during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Collects helper

    Montour notched an assist and went minus-3 in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 5.

    Montour picked up two goals and two assists over the last three games of the postseason, but his rediscovery of his offense didn't save the Panthers' season. The defenseman had 13 points, a plus-2 rating, 72 shots on net and 39 PIM in 21 outings, but a 10-game point drought in the middle showed some rare inconsistency. He's still on a bargain deal for next season at a $3.5 million cap hit -- a solid price to pay for a top-four defenseman who can run a power play.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Two points in loss

    Montour scored a goal on two shots, added an assist and logged 12 PIM in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Golden Knights in Game 4.

    Montour saw a pinball shot go in for the Panthers' first goal, and he set up Aleksander Barkov in the third period, but the comeback fell short. The defenseman has three points over his last two games since he snapped a 10-game drought. The top-four blueliner has eight goals, four assists, 39 PIM, 72 shots on net, 28 hits, 28 blocked shots and a plus-5 rating through 20 postseason contests.
