The Florida Panthers got more out of Anton Lundell during this rookie season than perhaps they counted on when doing preseason planning.

For Lundell, it was an education.

”When I came here, I didn’t expect very much,” he said last week. “I had just one goal and that was to get a spot on the roster. I didn’t think this season would go as well. It was a great season for me and for the team too. We played some unbelievable hockey and it’s a season we will remember.”

Lundell, Florida’s first-round pick in 2020, came to South Florida last summer ready to begin his NHL career and was a wild-card when it came to the loaded Panthers.

Those thoughts were quickly discarded once he took the ice and joined his new teammates.

Anton Lundell belonged from the start.
