Lost in the shuffle of the Florida Panthers very deep forward core, Carter Verhaeghe has been having himself quite the season so far.
In 57 games, the 6-2, 180-pound forward has 20 goals and 46 points, ranking fifth on the team in both categories.
He possesses a ton of speed for his size and, when he gets in alone, he has a slick release that could beat just about any goaltender he faces.
“I just like to shoot it,” Verhaeghe said. “I don’t want to reveal too much of my secrets, but I like shooting there.”
It has not always been easy for Verhaeghe, 26, who spent a few years before breaking out in South Florida, but it is starting to get there now.
