Quinton Howden: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Howden, the 25th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, has a legitimate shot at landing a roster spot with the big club heading into the 2012-2013 season. Either way, Howden is expected to make his way onto the NHL scene at some point this season and has second-line potential. Howden finished up his junior career with a 65 point campaign for the Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL) this past season. Howden is one of the top Panther prospects and has the offensive skill set to make him a solid long-term keeper option. Injuries are a factor and should be considered when figuring out where to select the youngster once a clear role within the Florida organization has been established.
Simply put, Howden is not flashy but he gets the job done. Last season the Manitoba native put up 65 points (28 G, 37 A) in as many games for the Moose Jaw Warriors in the Western Hockey League(juniors), where he will once again appear, in 2010-11. This time around, he should be extra confident after being taken 25th overall by Florida in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
