NHL - US Sports: Panthers excite Huberdeau

Forward Jonathan Huberdeau says he's excited to see how far the Florida Panthers can go this season after he extended his point-streak to 13 games in a 6-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Friday.

The Panthers, 11/2 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, are enjoying their best ever regular season with 53 wins (53-15-6) and 112 points.

Florida have won nine games in a row, lead the Toronto Maple Leafs by 10 points for first place in the Atlantic Division and sit second in the overall NHL standings.

Huberdeau had two goals and an assist against the Jets, extending his NHL record for assists in a season by a left winger to 78 and his Panthers single-season record to 108 points (30 goals).

The 28-year-old has 24 points (11 goals, 13 assists) during a 13-game point-streak which is tied the second longest in Panthers history. Mike Hoffman's 17-game run in 2018/19 leads the way.

Huberdeau was drafted in the first-round (third-overall) of the NHL draft by the Panthers in 2011 and is in his 10th season with the franchise.

The dynamic Canadian has helped the Panthers to win an astonishing 32 home games this season (32-6-0) which is the most by any NHL team.

With their ninth consecutive victory at home against Winnipeg, the Panthers joined the Detroit Red Wings (1995/96) as the only teams in NHL history with three home winning streaks of nine games or longer in a season.

Huberdeau commented to the media: "We have a special team. We're excited for what's coming up."
