Panthers' Mike Matheson: Quiet in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson (illness) logged 14:29 of ice time while registering one hit and one blocked shot during Tuesday's 2-1 win over Arizona.

Matheson had missed Florida's previous three games with an illness, so it's not exactly surprising that he was quiet in his return to action. The 26-year-old blueliner should continue to see bottom-pairing minutes Thursday against Toronto.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Set for another absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson (illness) isn't expected to suit up in Thursday's game against the Kings, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Matheson returned to Florida ahead of the team's four-game west-coast trip Tuesday so this news isn't surprising. The 25-year-old has been a steady contributor for the Panthers, accumulating 19 points in 51 games while averaging 18:06 of ice time. Josh Brown will likely continue to draw into the lineup unless Matheson re-joins the team on their road trip.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Under the weather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson is dealing with an illness and will return to Florida ahead of Wednesday's game against Anaheim, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Florida has four games remaining in its five-game road trip, so it appears as though Matheson could be facing an extended absence. The Panthers are expected to release another update on the 25-year-old blueliner's condition in the coming days, but for now, he can be considered out indefinitely.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Three-point eruption Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Devils.

The Panthers' makeshift fourth line of Noel Acciardi between two converted blueliners in Matheson and Mark Pysyk came through with another huge effort, as the trio combined for three goals and eight points on the night. Matheson has two three-point efforts through six games in February but goose eggs in the other four games, making him a risky fantasy option regardless of his role.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Racks up three assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson had three assists and three shots on goal with a plus-2 rating in Monday's 5-3 win over Toronto.

Matheson was in on two of Mark Pysyk's three goals while also drawing a helper on Mike Hoffman's game-winner. It was just his second multi-point game of the season, both of which have been three-point efforts. Matheson has six goals and 16 points through 45 games this season.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Snags assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson picked up an assist in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Blackhawks.

Matheson is up to 13 points and 82 shots on goal this season. The 25-year-old defenseman has posted back-to-back 27-point campaigns, but he's probably going to fall short of that mark in 2019-20.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Goals in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson scored his sixth goal of the season in a 4-3 win over the Kings on Thursday.

After picking up only two points in his first 23 games, Matheson has kickstarted his offensive game. Over his past 17 games, he has scored six goals and 10 points while moving back up to the first defensive pairing with Aaron Ekblad. If he keeps up this new offensive pace, he's worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Chases Andersen with goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson tallied a goal on two shots and added two blocked shots in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Maple Leafs.

Matheson's marker 49 seconds into the second period ended Frederik Andersen's night early. The 25-year-old blueliner is up to five goals and 11 points in 39 games this season. He's added 76 shots on goal, 34 hits and 37 blocks, but Matheson doesn't excel enough at any one thing to warrant much fantasy consideration.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Finds offensive game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson picked up an assist in a 4-1 win over the Penguins on Sunday.

Through 15 games in December, Matheson scored four goals and eight points with 25 shots on goal. Early in the season, Matheson was struggling to pick up points, recording only two in his first 21 games. Despite picking up the offense, Matheson is only on pace to score 21 points after back-to-back 27-point campaigns.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Career-best performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson delivered a goal and two assists with a plus-4 rating and two hits in Sunday's 6-5 win over Montreal.

It was the first career three-point game for Matheson, who notched the game-winning goal 45 seconds into the third period. It was his third goal of the season, with all of them coming during the month of December. Matheson also had two assists in a game for the first-time since Nov. 2018. He has eight points in 32 games after back-to-back seasons of 27 points.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Goal sneaks in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson scored a goal in Monday's 6-1 win over the Senators.

Just three games after scoring his first goal of the year, Matheson managed to squeak through another. Jonathan Huberdeau swung around the net and fed Matheson at the left circle, who blasted it on goal. Senators goalie Anders Nilsson got most of the puck, but it found its way into the net. Matheson now has four points in 27 games this season.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Pots first of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson scored his first goal of the season in a 5-1 win over the Sharks on Sunday.

It has been a rough start to the season for Matheson -- who managed only two points and a minus-9 rating through his first 23 games -- but hopefully Sunday's goal breaks the ice for the 25-year-old. He has recorded back-to-back 27-point seasons but is on pace to only hit 10 this year.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Ice time pulled down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson fired four shots on goal in 12:46 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

After starting the season in the top four, Matheson has been moved down to the bottom pairing. That has impacted Matheson's ice time, knocking him down to below 14 minutes on average over the last three games. The 25-year-old has not had a great season, recording only two points with a minus-11 rating in 22 games.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Produces helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.

Bumped down to the third pairing, Matheson saw a season-low 14:15 in ice time but still managed to pick up his second assist of the season. The 25-year-old has had a rough start, with only two points through 16 games while sporting a minus-8 rating.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson (undisclosed) will return to the lineup against Washington on Thursday, per George Richards of The Athletic.

Matheson missed the last five games due to his undisclosed issue. The blueliner has just one point in nine games this season, but should still be capable of topping the 25-point mark for a third straight year. As a depth scoring option, the 25-year-old probably isn't worth a lineup spot in season-long formats, but could be a sneaky value play depending on matchup in daily contests.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: 'Good chance' to play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Joel Quenneville said Matheson (undisclosed) has a "good chance" to play Thursday against the Capitals, David Dwork of WPLG Local 10 News reports.

The Panthers initially pegged Matheson with a 10-14 day recovery Oct. 24, and Thursday marks exactly 14 days since that report. Matheson will still need to get through the next couple days of practice without a relapse, but it appears he's on track to gear up against the Metropolitan Division leaders.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Will miss 10-14 days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson (undisclosed) is expected to be sidelined for 10-14 days, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Matheson will miss Florida's next five games at a minimum, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him get placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence. Riley Stillman will get the first crack at filling Matheson's spot in the lineup Thursday against the Flames.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Flames, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

With Matheson sidelined by an undisclosed injury, the recently recalled Riley Stillman will draw into the lineup and make his season debut against Calgary. The severity of Matheson's injury remains a mystery, but for now, he can be considered day-to-day ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Oilers.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Suffers injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson was hurt in Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

Matheson played just 15:16 of ice time prior to leaving the game. With Aaron Ekblad's (illness) status still up in the air, the club recalled Riley Stillman in order to bolster its depth on the blue line. Barring a long-term absence, Matheson should be capable of topping the 25-point mark for a third consecutive season, giving him decent mid-range fantasy value.

Panthers' Mike Matheson: Snags first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matheson picked up his first point of the season in a 6-3 win over New Jersey on Monday.

The assist came on the power play, giving Matheson only his second point on the man advantage since Dec. 6, 2018. He averaged only 48 seconds on the power play last season, so don't expect him to suddenly start racking up the points.
