  • Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Snaps 12-game goal drought

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/12/17) Bjugstad scored Florida's only goal in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Devils.

    The goal snapped a 12-game goal drought for the big center. Bjugstad was supposed to be a more prolific scorer than he's shown with the kitties, but at 25, he probably is what he is. And that's a 35-40 point player who has a tendency to struggle on his own side of the puck.

    Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Picks up helper Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/17) Bjugstad collected a helper in Thursday's blowout win over the Ducks.

    It tells you something about Bjugstad's current role when the Panthers score eight times and he only walks away with one assist. The 25-year-old does still have six points in nine games, but he's been bumped down to the third line and had been held off the scoresheet in all but one of his last five outings entering Thursday. The sniper has actually been playing quite well this season, but the coach doesn't seem to want to give him many minutes. It's a situation worth monitoring, as Bjugstad is a fantasy weapon when he's in the top six and finding twine consistency.

    Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Tallies two points in victory

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Bjugstad scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's home win against the Blues.

    Bjugstad pocketed a nifty, top-shelf goal on Jake Allen late in the third period, giving the Panthers an insurmountable 5-1 lead. The 6-foot-6 forward now has two goals and two assists in his first three games. However, the 25-year-old is averaging a career-low ice time of just 12:38, so this early production may not be sustainable.

    Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Adds two points at even strength

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/8/17) Bjugstad collected a goal and an assist Saturday, helping the Panthers edge the Lightning 5-4 at home.

    The 6-foot-6 power forward missed 43 games over the last two seasons with injuries largely to blame, but he's looking vigorous in the early going. Fantasy owners with shares in the Minnesota native shouldn't fret that he's only averaged 13 minutes of ice time through the first pair of games, as he's still picking up heavy minutes (2:22) on the power play and likely is being eased in after a rough year in 2016-17.

    Panthers' Nick Bjugstad: Could play wing in 2017

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/3/17) Bjugstad skated as the third-line right winger at practice Monday morning, the Sun Sentinel reports.

    The 6-foot-6 winger spent most of the 2016-17 campaign centering the third line for the Panthers, scoring just 14 points in 54 contests. Selected in the first round of the 2010 NHL draft, Bjugstad showed promise early in his career, scoring 115 points in his first three full seasons. Jared McCann and Connor Brickley lined up at center and left wing, respectively, alongside Bjugstad during the session, so it'll be interesting to see which combinations head coach Bob Boughner rolls with in the team's opener Friday in Tampa.
