  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Chips in with assist

    Luostarinen logged an assist and three hits in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    The helper was Luostarinen's first point in seven games. The 24-year-old has reverted to a bottom-six role after picking up extra minutes when the Panthers had more injuries up front. He reached the 20-point mark in his 43rd game of the campaign, and he's added 72 shots on net, a plus-12 rating, 34 hits and 25 blocked shots as a defensively-responsible player.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Sends another helper

    Luostarinen logged a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    This was Luostarinen's first power-play point of the season, as he's usually confined to a more defensive role. He's been getting it done on offense lately, picking up an assist in four of the last five games. On the year, the 24-year-old Finn has six goals, eight helpers, 42 shots on net, a plus-9 rating and eight PIM through 25 contests. He's over half of the way to surpassing the 26 points he put up in 78 outings last season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Posts assist in win

    Luostarinen notched an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Canucks.

    Luostarinen ended up leading all Panthers forwards with 21:01 of ice time, absorbing some of the minutes lost from Anton Lundell's (undisclosed) early exit. The assist was Luostarinen's third in the last four games, but he's now gone six contests without a goal. The Finn is up to 13 points, 41 shots on net and a plus-10 rating through 24 outings this season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Snags helper Monday

    Luostarinen produced an assist in Monday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.

    Luostarinen has assists in consecutive contests, and he's also added a pair of goals over the last six games. The 24-year-old has moved to center the third line with Anton Lundell moving up the lineup to cover for the absence of Aleksander Barkov (illness). Luostarinen is a stolid depth scorer -- he's at 12 points, 37 shots on net and a plus-11 rating through 22 contests, but his non-scoring contributions remain fairly modest.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Nabs assist while in top six

    Luostarinen logged an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Ducks.

    Luostarinen was bumped up to the second line with Matthew Tkachuk suspended for two games following Saturday's contest versus the Kings. The move worked well, as Luostarinen set up Sam Bennett on the game-winning goal at 8:10 of the third period. Through 13 games, Luostarinen has been an effective depth scorer in bursts. He has four goals, four assists, 21 shots on net and a plus-8 rating. The Finn will likely stay in the top six Wednesday versus the Hurricanes, but Tkachuk's return should see Luostarinen move back to his usual third-line assignment.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Nets game-tying marker

    Luostarinen scored a goal during Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Kings.

    Luostarinen, who entered Saturday without a point in four games, scored to briefly tie the game at 3-3 early in the third period. The 24-year-old center netted his first marker since compiling back-to-back tallies Oct. 23 and 25. Luostarinen, who did not have a shot during his previous appearance, generated a team-high six Saturday.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: One of each in win

    Luostarinen scored a goal on two shots, dished an assist, went plus-3, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Islanders.

    Luostarinen was involved in a little bit of everything in the win. His goal was an unassisted tally in the first period, and he also helped out on Ryan Lomberg's goal in the third. Luostarinen has emerged as a solid depth scorer so far with two goals, three helpers, a plus-7 rating, seven shots on net and six blocked shots. He's averaging 13:45 of ice time per game through six contests, so his scoring pace should dip a bit as the season goes on.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Breaks scoreless tie with goal

    Luostarinen scored the Panthers' first goal of the season during a 3-1 victory over the Islanders on Thursday.

    Luostarinen is out to establish himself during his fourth NHL campaign. So far, the 24-year-old center has yet to score on a consistent basis, collecting just nine markers in 78 games last season. Luostarinen, who has 13 goals in 131 career outings, broke a scoreless tie Thursday with his first goal of the season. The 2017 second-round draft pick could benefit if he stays on a line with newcomer Colin White.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Staying in Sunshine State

    Luostarinen signed a two-year contract extension with the Panthers on Friday.

    Luostarinen set career highs in both goals (nine) and assists (17) in 78 games for the Panthers last season. The Finnish forward should continue to provide bottom-sixth depth for Florida over the course of this new contract.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Scores in Game 2 loss

    Luostarinen scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Lightning.

    Luostarinen tallied Florida's lone goal of the night, firing a slapshot that Andrei Vasilevskiy couldn't handle to even the game 1-1 late in the second period. It's the first career playoff goal for the 23-year-old forward, who finished the regular season with nine goals and 17 assists. Luostarinen won't typically offer much offensive upside playing on the Panthers' fourth line.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Lends helper in win

    Luostarinen registered an assist in Friday's 4-3 overtime win over the Capitals in Game 6.

    Luostarinen has been limited to bottom-six minutes in the playoffs, and his assist Friday was his first point in six contests. He helped out on a Ryan Lomberg tally in the second period. Luostarinen was solid in the regular season with 26 points, 103 hits and 84 shots on net through 78 contests, but he's unlikely to play more than a depth role as the Panthers' season continues into the second round.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Reaches 25 points

    Luostarinen delivered two assists in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Senators.

    This was the fourth box-score multiplier in Luostarinen's young career. While the Finn is a key cog on the penalty kill, the Panthers have yet to feature him on the power play to the point where he'd garner much attention in fantasy leagues. That said, Florida is the top team in the league and his development is being fast tracked due to supreme talent up and down that lineup. Luostarinen has nine goals and 16 assists with one game to go in the regular season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Provides assist

    Luostarinen notched an assist and two hits in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Luostarinen set up Ryan Lomberg's go-ahead goal in the second period, but that was the last goal of the game for the Panthers. The 23-year-old Luostarinen has provided decent depth scoring with five points, 16 shots on net and a plus-5 rating through 12 games in March. The Finn has 20 points, 71 shots, 88 hits and a plus-3 rating in 61 outings overall.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Gathers assist in loss

    Luostarinen notched an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Luostarinen helped out on Carter Verhaeghe's opening goal in the first period. Through eight games in March, Luostarinen has a goal and three assists. He's been solid in a bottom-six role with 19 points, 66 shots, 82 hits and a plus-3 rating through 57 contests this season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Tallies shortie Sunday

    Luostarinen scored a shorthanded goal and added three hits in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Kings.

    Luostarinen got the Panthers on the board early in the second period. The 23-year-old has started to get in on the scoring more in March with a goal and two assists in his last six outings. His tally Sunday was his first since Dec. 30, and he's now at nine goals, 18 points, 60 shots on net, 77 hits and a plus-3 rating through 55 appearances. Joe Thornton (undisclosed) is nearing a return, which means Luostarinen and Noel Acciari are soon to be competing for likely just one spot in the lineup.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Activated off protocols list

    Luostarinen has exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Luostarinen will likely slot into a bottom-six role for Wednesday's game versus the Rangers. The 23-year-old winger has picked up seven goals and nine points through 26 contests this campaign.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Luostarinen entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Sunday.

    Luostarinen is one of four Florida players that landed on the COVID-19 list Sunday, with the others being Jonathan Huberdeau, Owen Tippett and MacKenzie Weegar. Luostarinen is a decent scoring threat and has seven goals (as well as nine points) across 26 appearances on the season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Garners helper Friday

    Luostarinen recorded an assist in Friday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes.

    This was just the second assist of the season for Luostarinen, who has added seven goals in 23 appearances. The 23-year-old has played almost exclusively in a bottom-six role. He's added 28 shots on net, 26 hits and a plus-3 rating.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Strikes early in third period

    Luostarinen scored a goal on two shots Monday in a 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

    The 23-year-old ignited a Florida rally 20 seconds into the third period, backhanding a puck during a scramble in front to get Florida on the board at 4-1. It was Luostarinen's fourth goal in nine games this season, already surpassing the three he scored in 44 contests in 2020-21.
