Prospect Pool Rankings

EP Rinkside 2022 NHL Prospect Pool Rankings: No. 24-ranked Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers boast an inordinately strong prospect pool for a team that's been a credible contender for as long as they have been. 

There's a real symmetry between their operations at the draft and how they shape their NHL roster. They want to play a high-scoring, up-tempo system, and their scouts find the players who gel with that ethos like clockwork at the draft.

With a handful of players who fit that mould in the system currently, a patient development regimen could yield more like players in the coming years. Players like Mackie Samoskevich, Justin Sourdif, and Michael Benning all have the creativity, handling abilities, and speed to play inside the Panthers' free-flowing, aggressive system. And others, like Evan Nause and Ludvig Jansson, could give the team the necessary depth to compete through long playoff runs. 

With that, let's take a look at the Panthers of tomorrow.
