In a year which promised improvements, Florida were unable to deliver. Talk about relying on older talent – Jaromír Jágr was left with the task of finishing as top goalscorer for the Panthers this year, with 18 goals at the age of 43. Disappointingly, in a year in which Nick Bjugstad was set for a big season, he only managed to contribute with a respectable 17 goals, while Jonathan Huberdeau finished the season with 40 points.
2014 Calder Trophy winner Aaron Ekblad was the diamond in the rough in a season to forget for Florida’s defenders, grabbing 11 goals and 37 assists.
It wasn’t a good year for Roberto Luongo who shipped just under 3 goals per game on average with a SV % of .909. Montoya faired much better when called upon, finishing with a GAA of 2.120 from 17 games.
Jaromír Jágr. Top goalscorer. Did I need to say anything else?
