by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar provided two assists and two shots on goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Blackhawks.

Weegar had a shot attempt tipped in by Alexander Wennberg on the power play in the second period. In overtime, Weegar set up Sam Bennett's game-winning goal. Through 50 outings, Weegar has 32 points, 91 shots, 110 hits, 73 blocked shots and a plus-23 rating. If he sticks on the power play, he could be a true all-around force in fantasy.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Ties team record for blueliner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar scored a career-high four points (one goal, three assists) in a 4-3 overtime victory over Carolina on Saturday.

Weegar tied a team record for most points in a game by a defenseman. He has 29 points, including four goals, in 47 games, but had just one assist in the six games prior to this outburst. That means that many fantasy managers likely chose someone else to activate Saturday. Weegar gets next to no power-play opportunities, so his 29 points are hard-fought. Not bad for a seventh-round pick (2013).

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Suiting up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) will be in the lineup for Thursday's game against Carolina, George Richards of Florida Hockey Now reports.

Weegar missed the past two games with the upper-body issue, but he'll make his return to the lineup. The 27-year-old will handle a top-pairing role for Thursday's game, as he's racked up 25 points and a plus-17 rating across 45 games this campaign.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't be in the lineup against Carolina on Thursday, George Richards of Panthers Press Box reports.

Weegar will be sidelined for his third straight contest due to his upper-body issue. Prior to getting hurt, the blueliner was bogged down in a seven-game goal drought during which he recorded four assists, 11 shots and 18 hits while averaging 22:55 of ice time.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Could return versus Hurricanes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) could be available for either Thursday or Sunday versus the Hurricanes, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

Weegar has missed two games with the injury, but it doesn't sound like he'll be out long-term. The 27-year-old defenseman has broken out with a career-high 25 points in 45 appearances in 2020-21.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) is not expected to be in Tuesday's lineup against the Blue Jackets, per NHL.com.

The 27-year-old blueliner will now miss a second consecutive game with his upper-body issue. Weegar has 25 points and a plus-17 rating through 45 games this season. He's still considered day-to-day, so he'll be questionable for Thursday's showdown with Carolina.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Dealing with upper-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar (upper body) won't play Monday against the Blue Jackets and is listed as day-to-day.

This will be the first absence of the season for Weegar, who leads all Panthers defensemen with 25 points in 45 games. His day-to-day label suggests the injury isn't too serious, so there's a chance Weegar will be ready to return as soon as Tuesday's rematch with Columbus.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Collects helper Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar recorded a power-play assist, five blocked shots and two hits in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Stars.

Weegar had the secondary helper on Frank Vatrano's overtime tally. The breakout year for Weegar continues -- he reached the 25-point mark for the first time in his five-year career. He's added 75 shots on net, 99 hits, 57 blocked shots, 42 PIM and a plus-19 rating. His assist Tuesday was his first power-play point since the 2018-19 campaign, and just his second career point with the man advantage.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Two helpers in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar notched two assists in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Blue Jackets.

That's now back-to-back multi-point performances for the 27-year-old, who seems to be stepping up his offensive contributions with Aaron Ekblad (leg) out for the rest of the year. On the season, Weegar has three goals and 23 points through 39 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Enjoying four-game point streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar had two assists and three shots Saturday in a 4-2 win over Chicago.

The 27-year-old defenseman is enjoying a strong stretch of productivity, hitting the scoresheet in a season-best four consecutive games (one goal, five assists).

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Dishes pair of apples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar collected two assists and two blocks Tuesday in a 4-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

The 27-year-old defenseman assisted on goals by Juho Lammikko and Carter Verhaeghe for his second multi-point game of the year. Weegar is enjoyed the most productive campaign of his brief career, already matching the 11 assists he tallied in each of the previous two seasons, and is five points from matching the career-high 18 he logged last year. He also boasts a career-best plus-7 rating.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Hammers second goal of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar scored a goal on a pair of shots Sunday and added four hits with two blocks in a 4-2 loss to Carolina.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Two-point effort against Wings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's 7-2 win over the Red Wings.

The multi-point effort was also Weegar's first of the year. The 27-year-old defenseman is enjoying riding the coat-tails of the Panthers' red-hot offense and now has seven points through 15 games, a pace that would allow him to set a new career scoring high even in this season's shortened schedule.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Staying productive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar picked up his third helper of the season in Friday's 2-1 win over the Predators.

The assist came on the game-winning goal by Aleksander Barkov late in the second period. Weegar also recorded three shots, two hits and two blocks in the game, which kept the Panthers undefeated in regulation so far this season. The 27-year-old remains a steady defensive presence on the Cats' top pairing. While his main role is allowing his defensive partner Aaron Ekblad to get more involved in the offense, Weegar is no slouch himself when he gets a chance to join the rush. Last season, he tallied seven goals and 18 points in 45 games.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Snags first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar got his first point of the season with an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win against the Blackhawks

Head coach Joel Quenneville has given Weegar a role with Aaron Ekblad on the team's top defensive unit to start the season, and he's looked right at home. The 27-year-old showed flashes of promise last season but was hampered by multiple injuries that limited him to only 45 games. Weegar is unlikely to fill up the scoresheet -- he has only 42 points in 174 career games -- but he is likely to continue skating over 20 minutes a night as the Panthers look to solve their defensive deficiencies.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Opens camp in top pairing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar is matched up with Aaron Ekblad to start training camp, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

The duo will likely open the regular season together as the Panthers' top defensive pairing. Weegar was hampered by a variety of injuries last season -- only managing to play 45 games -- but made the most of the opportunities by setting career highs with seven goals and 18 points.

Panthers' MacKenzie Weegar: Secures three-year pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Weegar inked a three-year, $9.75 million deal with Florida on Friday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

Weegar saw a huge uptick in ice time last season, as he averaged over 20 minutes per game for the first time in his three-year NHL career. The defender's offensive ceiling remains in the 20-25 point range, which is in part due to his lack of power-play opportunities, but his defensive capabilities could bolster Aaron Ekblad's numbers by allowing him to jump into the play more often.
