With Mike Hoffman and Evgenii Dadonov gone, we knew the Florida Panthers would have a new look to its top power play unit. Having Aaron Ekblad run it as the ‘quarterback’ was a little bit of a surprise.

On Wednesday, the Panthers did special teams work for the first time since training camp opened Monday.

The top power play unit, at least right now, has Ekblad up top running things in place of Keith Yandle who has done so for the most part since he signed with the Panthers in 2016.
