  • Panthers' Mike Matheson: Signs eight-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/7/17) Matheson signed an eight-year, $39 million contract with the Panthers on Saturday, TSN reports.

    The 23-year-old blueliner played 81 games last season, scoring seven goals and adding 10 assists. Matheson fired 179 shots on goal combined with 118 blocked shots last campaign, and he's proven himself enough to be a long-term asset in Florida. He's locked into a top-four role this season and is currently paired with Alex Petrovic ahead of Saturday's matchup with the Lightning.

    Panthers' Mike Matheson: Two points in last 24 games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/24/17) Matheson has recorded two points, both of which were goals, in his last 24 games.

    The pair of snipes actually came back in the same game on Jan. 31 against Ottawa. Of course, Matheson is a young defenseman acclimating to the rigors of life at the NHL level, so there's bound to be peaks and valleys, but his extended cold streak is nonetheless still frustrating. Then again, the 2012 first-rounder never was a huge scorer from the back end in junior or with Boston College, so his 15 points in 58 games in South Florida really aren't all that bad based on his track record (career-high 25 points for BC).

    Panthers' Mike Matheson: Playing well in rookie season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Matheson has had a fine rookie season thus far, contributing three goals and nine assists in 40 games.

    The 22-year-old has done well for himself in the infancy of his NHL career, as he's averaged over 20 minutes of ice time (20:26) while firing a significant amount of rubber on net (95 shots). Matheson is currently skating on the team's second defense pairing with Aaron Ekblad and also occasionally receives time on the second power-play unit, as well.

    Panthers' Mike Matheson: Earns rare point Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/6/16) Matheson collected an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Bruins.

    The rookie rearguard snapped a nine-game point drought with the assist, and he's now up to eight points in 25 games this season. Matheson has averaged a hearty amount of ice time (19:38) this season and skated in a career-high 24:13 on Monday to fill the hole left by Keith Yandle, who departed early on with a lower-body injury. If Yandle is forced to miss time, Matheson -- a first-round pick from 2012 -- would likely see an uptick in ice time, so those in deeper leagues may want to pencil him onto their watch list.

    Panthers' Mike Matheson: Warming bench Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/29/16) Matheson will not play Saturday afternoon, when the Panthers visit the Sabres, Joe Yerdon of NHL.com reports.
