Of the four players the Florida Panthers got back when they traded Vincent Trocheck to the Carolina Hurricanes, Eetu Luostarinen was by far the most overlooked.

As pundits broke down a deal where one of the most popular Florida players was traded away, the other three players got all the love.

Erik Haula, of course, was the biggest name coming back to the Panthers, a known commodity who scored 29 goals for the expansion Golden Knights just two seasons prior.

Lucas Wallmark was a rookie center, but one who had a lot of upside and was going to slide with in and take over Florida’s third line.

Defenseman Chase Priskie was in his first year out of Quinnipiac and was a highly sought after free agent the previous summer. He is also a South Florida native. Good player, better story.

Then came Eetu Luostarinen.
