  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Staying in Sunshine State

    Luostarinen signed a two-year contract extension with the Panthers on Friday.

    Luostarinen set career highs in both goals (nine) and assists (17) in 78 games for the Panthers last season. The Finnish forward should continue to provide bottom-sixth depth for Florida over the course of this new contract.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Scores in Game 2 loss

    Luostarinen scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning.

    Luostarinen tallied Florida's lone goal of the night, firing a slapshot that Andrei Vasilevskiy couldn't handle to even the game 1-1 late in the second period. It's the first career playoff goal for the 23-year-old forward, who finished the regular season with nine goals and 17 assists. Luostarinen won't typically offer much offensive upside playing on the Panthers' fourth line.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Lends helper in win

    Luostarinen registered an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals in Game 6.

    Luostarinen has been limited to bottom-six minutes in the playoffs, and his assist Friday was his first point in six contests. He helped out on a Ryan Lomberg tally in the second period. Luostarinen was solid in the regular season with 26 points, 103 hits and 84 shots on net through 78 contests, but he's unlikely to play more than a depth role as the Panthers' season continues into the second round.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Reaches 25 points

    Luostarinen delivered two assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Senators.

    This was the fourth box-score multiplier in Luostarinen's young career. While the Finn is a key cog on the penalty kill, the Panthers have yet to feature him on the power play to the point where he'd garner much attention in fantasy leagues. That said, Florida is the top team in the league and his development is being fast tracked due to supreme talent up and down that lineup. Luostarinen has nine goals and 16 assists with one game to go in the regular season.

    Luostarinen notched an assist and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Luostarinen set up Ryan Lomberg's go-ahead goal in the second period, but that was the last goal of the game for the Panthers. The 23-year-old Luostarinen has provided decent depth scoring with five points, 16 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 12 games in March. The Finn has 20 points, 71 shots, 88 hits and a plus-3 rating in 61 outings overall.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Tallies shortie Sunday

    Luostarinen scored a shorthanded goal and added three hits in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Kings.

    Luostarinen got the Panthers on the board early in the second period. The 23-year-old has started to get in on the scoring more in March with a goal and two assists in his last six outings. His tally Sunday was his first since Dec. 30, and he's now at nine goals, 18 points, 60 shots on net, 77 hits and a plus-3 rating through 55 appearances. Joe Thornton (undisclosed) is nearing a return, which means Luostarinen and Noel Acciari are soon to be competing for likely just one spot in the lineup.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Gets bounce for OT winner

    Luostarinen scored the game-winning goal on his only shot of the game in a 5-4 overtime win over Washington on Thursday. He also had a pair of hits.

    Luostarinen tried to hit Frank Vatrano streaking toward the net, but his past deflected off the stick of a backchecking Tom Wilson and into the Washington net just under two minutes into overtime. It was the third goal of the year for Luostarinen, who's lit the lamp three times on four total shots in his last four games.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Goals in consecutive games

    Luostarinen scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    Luostarinen has scored his two goals this season in the last two games. The Finn began the year with an undisclosed injury, and that likely played a role in his slow start. He's slotting in as the Panthers' third-line center, and the team's deep offense could lead to him earning some solid secondary scoring this year, although it's unclear if that'll be enough to interest fantasy managers.
