It was just his second career hattie, both of which came this season. Wennberg has found a home in Florida -- he has scored a career-high 16 goals this season, one more than he had in three seasons combined with the Blue Jackets. Wennberg may never capture the same glory he did in 2016-17 when he potted 59 points, but he's a solid third-line pivot.

Wennberg scored a hat trick Saturday in a 5-2 win over Columbus. It was his first career three-goal game in the NHL.
Wennberg let loose on his former team. His first first goal was a beautiful one-timer on a two-on-one that only counted on review -- it was in and out faster than the naked eye could see. Wennberg's second goal -- a sharp wrister from the top of the left circle -- stood as the winner. He deposited the third into an empty net. Wennberg played for the Blue Jackets from 2014-20 and put up 59 points, including 13 goals, in 2016-17. He has 11 goals and eight assists in 38 games this season; four of those goals have come in the last two games.

The goal was Wennberg's first since Feb. 20, putting an end to his 11-game scoring slump. After 28 games, Wennberg is on pace for his first double-digit goal output since 2016-17, thanks in large part to a career-best shooting percentage (16.7).
Wennberg tallied his sixth assist of the season in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.
Over the past nine games Wennberg has collected only two points -- both helpers -- in 17:12 of average ice time. The 26-year-old center hasn't been the offensive spark the Panthers hoped he would be on the second line, but with a lack of other options at the team's disposal, he will likely remain in his role. Wennberg has 11 points in 25 games this season.

Wennberg scored a goal in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Wennberg was the only Panther who found a way to beat Thomas Greiss in the contest. It was Wennberg's first goal with the Panthers -- he's been limited to three points and 12 shots on net through nine games. Much more of a playmaker rather than a scorer, Wennberg hasn't done enough of either to interest many fantasy managers this year.
Wennberg picked up an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime victory over the Blackhawks.
The helper was Wennberg's first point with the Panthers following six seasons with the Blue Jackets. The 26-year-old has the potential to be an under-the-radar fantasy option as he centers Jonathan Huberdeau and Patric Hornqvist on the Panthers' second line. He's only scored more than eight goals once in his career but has shown a knack for finding his teammates -- collecting 46 assists in 80 games with Columbus in the 2016-17 season.
Wennberg was signed to a one-year, $2.25 million contract by the Panthers on Friday, Darren Dreger of TSN reports.
Fresh off a buyout by Columbus of the remaining three years of his six-year, $29.4 million contract, the 26-year-old has officially found a new landing spot. Wennberg has steadily declined (as far as the scoresheet goes) since his 59-point effort in 2016-17, posting totals of 35, 25 and 22 in the following three campaigns. He should get a look in the Panthers' top six and receive every opportunity to return to the point-every-other-game (or better) threshold in his new digs.
Wennberg has been placed on unconditional waivers for the purpose of buying out the remaining three years of his six-year, $29.4 million contract.
Wennberg signed his long-term extension after a strong 2016-17 campaign in which he racked up 13 goals and 59 points in 80 games, but he hasn't lived up to that contract, having totaled just 15 goals and 82 points in 198 contests over the past three campaigns. He likely won't be on the market for long, as he's still a capable middle-six forward, but it remains to be seen if he'll regain fantasy relevance with a new team in 2020-21.
Wennberg scored a goal in Columbus' 3-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Thursday.

Wennberg is set to return to action for the first time since Feb. 2 versus Montreal, a stretch of 12 games on IR. In 52 games this year, the center has notched five goals and 15 helpers. With 17 contests remaining, the Swede may still have enough time to get over the 30-point mark for the first time since 2018-19.
