After compiling a slew of dazzling shootout and penalty shot goals during his Calder Trophy campaign last season, Panthers’ budding star, Jonathan Huberdeau, continued his shootout dominance on Saturday night as the Panthers earned a much needed 2-1 shootout victory over the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Huberdeau is now 3 for 5 on shootout attempts in his young NHL career.
