  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Bends twine against Caps

    Luostarinen scored a goal on one shot in a 4-2 win over Washington on Thursday.

    Luostarinen needs just one more tally to reach the 10-goal threshold but is unlikely to repeat his 2022-23 total, as he scored 17 times in 82 games. Additionally, the 25-year-old winger is on pace to miss the 25-point mark for the first time since his rookie campaign, when he notched just eight points in 44 games.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: First multi-goal game in NHL

    Luostarinen scored a pair of power-play goals in a 4-1 win over Montreal on Saturday.

    It was the forward's first multi-goal game in the NHL in his 248th regular-season appearance. Luostarinen is a third-line fixture in Florida with limited fantasy value. He caught lightning in a bottle last season with 43 points, including 17 goals, in 82 games. However, Luostarinen has fallen back to earth in 2023-24 with 10 points through 36 contests. He is currently on a 23-point pace, which doesn't make him an attractive fantasy option.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Supplies only offense in loss

    Luostarinen scored his fifth goal of the season in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.

    He spoiled Joel Hofer's shutout bid midway through the second period with a billiard shot -- Luostarinen's dump-in attempt took a strange carom off the glass right by the Panthers' bench and went straight into the net while Hofer waited for the puck behind the cage. Three of Luostarinen's five goals on the season have come in the last seven games, but those are the checking-line winger's only points in December.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Scores third goal of 2023-24

    Luostarinen provided a goal in a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh on Friday.

    Luostarinen's marker came early in the third period and proved to be the game-winner. It was his third tally and sixth point in 26 contests this season, which is way down from his 2022-23 finish of 17 goals and 43 points in 82 appearances. That offensive decline has come despite Luostarinen averaging 16:08 of ice time this year, which is roughly in line with his 15:59 last season. We're likely too deep into the season for the 25-year-old to recover to the point of matching his 2022-23 totals, but he should be able to increase his offensive pace at least somewhat as the campaign progresses.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Contributes goal Monday

    Luostarinen collected a goal in a 5-0 win over Ottawa on Monday.

    Luostarinen has two goals and five points through 21 contests this season. He's getting a solid amount of ice time with Florida -- an average of 16:11 per game going into Monday's action -- but he doesn't have a regular role on the power play. That's unlikely to change unless the Panthers run into injury troubles, which significantly limits Luostarinen's offensive potential for the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Deposits opening goal

    Luostarinen scored a goal on two shots, added two hits and went plus-2 in Friday's 2-1 win over the Ducks.

    Luostarinen got his first goal of the campaign at 14:50 of the first period. The 25-year-old has made limited contributions on offense this season while skating in a middle-six role. He's up to three points 22 shots on net, 18 hits, 15 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating over 17 appearances. He had 43 points in 82 appearances last year, so it's possible he could unlock more offense as the season goes on.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Nabs helper in victory

    Luostarinen registered an assist in Friday's 5-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    Luostarinen has a pair of helpers representing his point total through 13 games, which is far from matching his career-high 43-point pace from 2022-23. The Panthers have largely removed the Finn from the power play after he saw time in that key special teams spot in October, which is a trend worth watching as the Panthers fight for supremacy in the Atlantic Division.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Practices to begin camp

    Luostarinen was in Group A for Thursday's first practice of training camp, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Luostarinen missed five games with a broken tibia at the end of the playoffs, but the 25-year-old appears fine now. The Finnish forward figures to be a middle-six player for much of 2023-24, though he could easily move around the lineup as a versatile forward. He had 43 points, 132 shots on goal and a plus-19 rating in 82 regular-season games last season.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Inks three-year extension

    Luostarinen (leg) signed a three-year, $9 million contract with Florida on Tuesday.

    Luostarinen sat out the final five games of Florida's playoff run because of a broken tibia. During the regular season, he set career highs in goals (17), assists (26), points (43) and shots on net (132) over 82 contests. Luostarinen has developed nicely as a versatile two-way threat for the Panthers. He will probably line up as a middle-six forward during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Suffered broken tibia

    Luostarinen suffered a broken tibia in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals, which is why he missed all five contests of the Stanley Cup Finals, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Luostarinen had two goals and five points in 16 playoff outings this year. He also recorded 17 goals and 43 points in 82 regular-season games. It's not clear if Luostarinen will be ready for training camp, but he won't require surgery.

    Luostarinen (lower body) won't play in Tuesday's Game 5 versus the Golden Knights, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Won't play Saturday

    Luostarinen (lower body) will miss Game 4 versus Vegas on Saturday, Mike Stephens of SI Now reports.

The 24-year-old has two goals and five points in the postseason, all versus Boston in the opening round. Since then, he's gone nine straight games without a point. Luostarinen had 17 goals and 26 assists in 82 regular-season games this year.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Unavailable Thursday

    Luostarinen (lower body) will miss Game 3 on Thursday, Mike Stephens of SI.com reports.

    Florida will be without Luostarinen for a third straight contest. He has two goals and five points in 16 playoff contests this year. If Luostarinen is able to return before the end of the Stanley Cup Finals, he will likely play on Florida's second or third line.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Won't play Monday

    Luostarinen (lower body) won't play Monday in Game 2 against Vegas, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Luostarinen will miss his second straight contest. He has supplied five points, 14 shots on goal and 37 hits in 16 games this postseason. Zac Dalpe, who got into the lineup in Luostarinen's place, logged just 5:40 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Missing Game 1

    Luostarinen (lower body) is not on the ice for warmups ahead of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals versus the Golden Knights, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Luostarinen was initially expected to be fine for the series opener after suffering an injury in Game 4 versus the Hurricanes and apparently aggravating it at practice Friday. That won't be the case, with Zac Dalpe instead projected to join the lineup in a bottom-six role. Luostarinen can be considered day-to-day ahead of Monday's Game 2.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Game-time decision Saturday

    Luostarinen (lower body) will be a game-time decision Saturday versus Vegas, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Luostarinen left practice early Friday after he was injured in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals on May 24. Coach Paul Maurice is optimistic that Luostarinen will be in the lineup for Game 1. Luostarinen had two goals and five points in the opening round versus Boston, but he has not picked up a point in nine games over the last two rounds.
