Jonathan Huberdeau LW FLA 7 Hrs

Huberdeau scored his fourth goal of the season and added an assist in Sunday's win over the Maple Leafs.

It's been an up-and-down year for Huberdeau, who now has 15 points in 30 games. Playing on the first line and top power-play unit, the potential is always there for Huberdeau to start lighting it up. On pace for 40 points, Huberdeau needs to show more consistency before we can begin trusting him in most leagues. His top-six role and gushing potential does make him worth a look in deeper formats.

Huberdeau lit the lamp in Friday's 3-2 shootout victory over the Red Wings.

It was just his third tally and 12th point of the year in 24 games for the 2011 third-overall pick. However, he has four points in his last five games and is skating on the top line and PP unit with monster center Nick Bjugstad and offensively-capable Tomas Fleischmann, so look for Huberdeau to finally start hitting the scoresheet with more regularity as the Panthers defend their Wild Card spot. Also, his shooting percentage of 5.6 this season is significantly lower than his career average of 9.5, suggesting that more goals are on the horizon.

Huberdeau picked up a pair of assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's shootout loss to Florida.

He's been racking up the helpers over the last 10 games, collecting eight of 'em along with a goal. However, the fact that Huberdeau's found the net just twice himself all year remains rather troubling. We're still waiting for 2011's No. 3 overall pick to truly break out.

Huberdeau assisted on a pair of Nick Bjugstad goals -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's shootout win over the Sharks.

That gives him points in three straight, with a goal and four assists in that span. After an extended slump, Huberdeau's officially heating up, so make sure you're rolling him out.

Huberdeau was able to find the scoresheet with a power play assist in the third period of a 5-2 loss to the Kings Tuesday.

After his early season struggles, Huberdeau has three points in his last two games. He has found some good chemistry on the second line with Nick Bjugstad and Brad Boyes. He played 3:20 minutes of power play time and was only behind Bjugstad in ice time for forwards with 17:19. Huberdeau is only available on the waiver wire because of the slow start, so pick him up while you can and especially if you are in a deep keeper league.

Huberdeau snapped a five-game scoring drought and a 10-game goalless drought with a goal and an assist in Sunday's blowout win over Anaheim.

Whew, we were starting to get worried. Huberdeau only has four points (two goals) in 12 games on the season, but his breakout Sunday is likely a sign of things to come. At only 21-years of age, this kid will definitely be alright. Look for him to pick up the offense after a confidence-boosting night against the Ducks.

Huberdeau has failed to reach the scoresheet in nine of his first 12 games this season compiling only two points (1G,1A) along with a minus-2 rating.

Huberdeau has been a disappointment to say the least to start the 2014-2015 season. The 21-year-old is only two seasons removed from winning the Calder trophy in what was the lockout shortened season in 2013, posting 31 points in 48 games. After a disappointing 2013-2014 season which saw Huberdeau get 28 points in 69 games, his former junior coach Gerard Gallant was brought in to be the head coach of the Panthers this season. Some thought this would jumpstart Huberdeau back into form but so far there have been minimal results. The good news is the head coach knows what kind of player Huberdeau can be and will keep trying to give him every opportunity to turn his season around. Until he starts showing signs of improvement, forget about the Huberdeau that won the Calder trophy and focus on the "what have you done for me lately" part.

Huberdeau (illness) will be back in the lineup Saturday, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The illness forced Huberdeau out of the Panthers' previous three games, but after he was finally able to get in a full practice Friday, he'll be given the go-ahead to return to the lineup. Huberdeau is expected to man the left wing on the second line, joining Nick Bjugstad and Scottie Upshall.

Huberdeau (illness) isn't expected to return to the lineup until Saturday against Calgary, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Huberdeau is set to miss his third straight contest Thursday, but it sounds like the illness has begun to run its course at this point. The Panthers likely just want Huberdeau to get in a full practice Friday before giving him the go-ahead to play his usual minutes. After a letdown of a sophomore season, Huberdeau hasn't done much to suggest a breakthrough is on the horizon, providing just two points in his first eight contests.
