  • Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Remains quiet in another loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12:15 pm ET) Ekblad once again came out of a game without a point as the Panthers dropped their fourth in a row Tuesday, 5-4 to the Flyers in a shootout.

    The Panthers have scored 11 goals through their last three games but Ekblad has yet to factor into any of them. It certainly doesn't help that the team as a whole has gone 1-for-15 on the power play to start the season. So far he only has seven shots on net, good for 1.75 shots per game, which is well below his career average of 2.47. If Ekblad wants to get past his career-high 16 goals, achieved last season, he will need to start putting more pucks on the net.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Cleared to play Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/18) Ekblad (lower body) is expected to be active for Saturday's road opener versus the Lightning, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

    This is huge for the countless owners depending on Ekblad as a highly ranked fantasy defenseman. The Ontario native has 134 points (53 goals, 81 assists) over 309 career contests with the Panthers, plus he's cemented on the Florida power play. Don't waste another second plugging him into your lineups.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: No serious concerns about lower-body injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/29/18) Ekblad sustained a lower-body injury and is day-to-day, though Panthers coach Bob Boughner said the defenseman will be good to go for the season opener versus the Lightning in Tampa next Saturday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    We wouldn't push Ekblad down your draft sheets due to this seemingly minor development. The Panthers will hold the star defenseman out of Saturday's preseason finale against the Bolts to afford him some extra rest ahead of the regular-season grind. Ekblad is a terrific puck-pushing blueliner who recorded 16 goals and 22 assists over a full season in 2017-18.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Dishes assist in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/28/18) Ekblad tallied one assist in a 6-2 preseason loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    A minus-2 on the evening, Ekblad appears no worse for wear after being the victim of a sucker punch, courtesy of Canadiens' forward Max Domi. While certainly not a banner evening for the 22-year-old, there remains little cause for concern about Ekblad come the regular season. He could wind up eclipsing the 40-point mark for the first time in his career.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Fine following punch to face

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/18) Ekblad was yanked from Wednesday's game against the Canadiens to undergo concussion testing, but he passes tests and did not suffer a broken nose, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    Ekblad took a punch from Max Domi that may have been unwarranted and the league will likely review the incident for a potential suspension. It appears the blueliner escaped without any significant issues, so he should be good to go Saturday against the Stars.
