Panthers' Brett Connolly: Lands on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly cleared waivers Monday and was assigned to the taxi squad.

Connolly is two seasons removed from a 22-goal year with the Capitals, but he has struggled with the Panthers this season, scoring one goal on 13 shots through 16 games. The 28-year-old still carries a $3.5 million cap hit through the 2022-23 season. He'll continue to practice and travel with the team while on the taxi squad, but he'll need to be promoted to the active roster before playing his next NHL game.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Lands on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly was waived by the Panthers on Sunday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Connolly has put up three points and 13 shots on net through 16 games. The 28-year-old is signed through the 2022-23 season at a $3.5 million cap hit, so it's unlikely that he'll get claimed on waivers. However, if he clears, the Panthers can assign him to the taxi squad or the minors, which would provide some salary-cap flexibility.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Healthy scratched again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly sat out his third game in four outings during Friday's 2-1 win over the Predators.

With zero points and only two shots recorded in the five games he did play in this season, Connolly has found himself on the outside of the Panthers starting lineup. The Cats have a bevy of younger wingers fighting for a spot in the bottom six, which means Connolly may be watching from the press box a lot this season unless he can muster an offensive spark soon.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Comes up empty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly was unable to add to the offense in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Blackhawks, ending the night without a shot on goal.

After joining the Panthers for the 2019-20 season, Connolly was thrust into a top-six role and started the season out hot with 21 points in his first 29 games. Since then, however, he's gone ice-cold, scoring only four points in his last 30 games. Head coach Joel Quenneville has the winger on the fourth line, so it wouldn't be a shock to see him as a healthy scratch if his offensive woes continue.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Nearing 20-goal plateau
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly tallied 19 goals and 33 points in 69 games prior to the league suspension of play in mid-March.

The 2010 sixth overall pick joined his fourth NHL team this season after spending time with Tampa Bay, Boston and Washington. Connolly has received a career-high 14:30 of ice time with the Panthers, which he's parlayed into what would be (should regular-season play resume) a near-guaranteed return to the 20-goal plateau for the second straight year after failing to get there in his first seven professional campaigns. His six power-play points are a personal best, too, and have come in a modest 1:18 of average man-advantage time. All told, the ship has probably sailed on Connolly ever delivering on his lofty draft position, but at the age of 28, he should still be in his prime and good for a point every other game or so.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Picks up game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored a goal on two shots in a 2-1 win over St. Louis on Monday.

Connolly picked an opportune time to snap his 12-game goal drought, beating Jordan Binnington from below the left faceoff circle just over four minutes into the third period to put the Panthers ahead to stay. It was Connolly's 19 goal of the season, leaving him on the doorstep of a second straight 20-goal campaign.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Hits goal-scoring slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly was held off the scoresheet with only one shot and a minus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.

After scoring 14 goals in his first 29 games with a shooting percentage of 26.4 percent, Connolly has come back down to earth. He has only two goals and eight points in his last 20 games, shooting at a much lower 6.5 percent. He has converted on 14.3 percent of shots in his career, so neither stretch is truly indicative of his usual play, and he will likely find his scoring touch again after the All-Star break.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Contributes pair of helpers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly registered two assists, three shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

Connolly now has four points over his last four games. The 27-year-old winger has 29 points (16 goals, 13 helpers) in 45 appearances this season. As Sunday showed, the Panthers can have an explosive offense, and Connolly is typically a good source of depth scoring when the team runs hot.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Fires game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored a goal on three shots and added a pair of hits in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins.

Connolly beat Pittsburgh goalie Tristan Jarry on the doorstep midway through the first period to give Florida a 2-1 lead. It was Connolly's 16th goal of the season but his first at even strength since Nov. 27. The 27-year-old has enjoyed a strong first season in Florida and is on pace to eclipse the career-high 22 goals he scored last season for Washington.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Collects assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly picked up an assist in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Canadiens.

He was in a bit of a slump before this weekend's back-to-back saw him pick up a goal and an assist. Connolly has been a bit of a surprise addition to the Panthers offense, scoring 15 goals and adding 10 helpers in 38 games so far this season.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Goal drought continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly was held without a goal for the seventh straight game in Monday's 6-1 loss to Tampa Bay.

Goals were coming often for Connolly early on as he scored 14 in the first 29 games of the season. Since Dec 10 though, offense has dried up for Connolly who has only managed two assists in his last seven games. He is still on pace for career-highs in both goals and points as he already has 23 points in 36 games.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Piling up goals in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored his 14th goal of the season in a 5-1 win over the Sharks on Sunday.

Connolly has scored power-play goals in back-to-back contests and is currently rocking an unsustainable shooting percentage (26.4). The 27-year-old is having a career year and needs just nine more goals to reach 23. Connolly's previous career-high for goals in a season is 22, accomplished last year.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Stays hot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored his 12th goal of the year and had three shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.

Connolly lit the lamp against his former squad midway through the second period, his sixth goal in the last six games. He's also reached the scoresheet in six of his last seven outings and has nine points in that stretch. The 27-year-old is already more than halfway to the 22 goals he scored in 81 games last season with the Caps.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Piling up points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored his 11th goal of the season in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Sabres.

Connolly has been highly effective as of late, putting up seven points over his last six games. His 11 goals lead Florida who saw its three-game win streak snapped by the Sabres. Connolly and the Panthers now will enjoy a few days off before Wednesday's road game in Washington.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Two quick goals spark comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored twice in just 27 seconds during Thursday's 5-4 overtime win against the Ducks.

The Panthers were down 4-0 late in the second period before Connolly fired off two quick goals to cut the deficit in half. The 27-year-old winger has played a big role in the Cats' success so far this season, with 10 goals and 17 points in 22 games.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Scores at odd angle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly ended Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers with a goal and an assist.

Connolly's goal came from behind the icing line as he banked it off the back of the Flyer's goalie, Carter Hart, to break a one-one tie. After scoring a career-high 46 points last season, Connolly is on pace for another career-high with eight goals and 15 points through 21 games.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Chips in helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly was credited with an assist and two shots in a 4-3 loss to the Jets on Thursday.

That puts Connolly back on the scoresheet after failing to pick up a point for three straight, which up to this point was his longest drought of the season. With Vincent Trocheck back from a lower-body injury, Connolly should be able to continue his productive ways. He has 12 points in 19 games this season.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Tips home goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored his sixth goal of the season in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Capitals on Thursday.

With 11 points in 15 games so far, Connolly is on pace to beat the career high of 46 points he put up last season. Don't be scared off by his high shooting percentage (20.7 percent), as he has shot 18.1 percent over the last three seasons. Connolly is providing exactly the kind of depth scoring he was brought in as a free agent to contribute, and he is unlikely to lose his spot on the second line anytime soon.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Two helpers against Oilers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly recorded two assists in Sunday's 6-2 win over the Oilers.

The veteran winger is having a great start to his first season with the Panthers, piling up four goals and nine points through 11 games. Connolly scored a career-high 22 goals and 46 points last year for the Capitals, but even with a top-six assignment in Florida, the 27-year-old seems unlikely to maintain his current pace.

Panthers' Brett Connolly: Lights lamp once again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Connolly scored a goal on four shots and had four PIM in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Predators.

After opening the year without a goal in his first five games, Connolly now finds himself with four goals over the last three contests. He's started to generate more shots on goal during his recent run and was he one of Florida's ice time leaders at even strength and on the power play in this one. With seven points in eight games, the 27-year-old is off to a nice start in his first season with the Panthers.
