  • Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Heating up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/18) Ekblad recorded a power-play goal, an assist and four shots during Monday's 7-5 win over Edmonton.

    Ekblad is now up to a four-game point streak consisting of three goals and three assists. He's well on his way to returning to the 30-point plateau, and his even plus-minus rating is a huge improvement on last season's minus-23 mark. While it seems like Ekblad has been around forever, he's only in his age-21 season, so he's likely still a couple years away from entering his prime.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: First multi-point game since start of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/18) Ekblad scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Red Wings.

    It was Ekblad's first multi-point game since Oct. 12, a span of 47 games. The big defender has scuffled since his excellent rookie season and this season is yet another struggle. Ekblad is on a pace that won't deliver 30 points if he manages to play out the rest of the games this season. He's better than this, but we hope Ekblad's trajectory is different than Tyler Myers'.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Nothing to show for seven shots

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/18) Ekblad fired seven shots on net in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Islanders.

    While Ekblad failed to get on the scoresheet, it wasn't for lack of trying. The 2014 first overall pick has been snakebitten over the past two seasons, as he's scored just 19 goals on 356 shots in 116 appearances since the start of 2016-17 after potting 27 goals on 352 shots in 159 games over his first two campaigns.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Finds back of net in Tuesday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/18) Ekblad scored the Panthers' lone goal on three shots while adding a hit, two PIM and a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 6-1 loss to the Stars.

    He's now lit the lamp three times in the last five games, putting Ekblad easily on pace for his fourth consecutive campaign with double-digit goals. The 21-year-old hasn't yet truly broken out as an offensive force, but his upside remains sky high, especially if the Panthers can add more talent in front of him.

    Panthers' Aaron Ekblad: Scores second goal in three games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/18) Ekblad slammed home the overtime winner in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Golden Knights.

    The 21-year-old defenseman now has eight goals and 14 points on the season. Despite averaging a career-high 23:51 of ice time, Ekblad still struggles to find his name on the scoresheet regularly and he's had two separate scoreless droughts that lasted 10 games or longer. At this point he simply isn't a reliable fantasy option in standard leagues.
