When the Florida Panthers acquired Vladimir Tarasenko two days ahead of the NHL trade deadline, the major storyline was that he would add another wrinkle to the Panthers’ offense.

After all, Tarasenko earned a reputation as one of the NHL’s top snipers after scoring at least 30 goals six times throughout his 13-year NHL career.

And, yes, he has looked as dynamic as ever in his first three games with the Panthers — scoring two goals and three points while generating countless scoring chances — but that has not been the most impressive part of his game thus far.

His play in the defensive zone has been just as good as his offense; Tarasenko has shown he is not afraid to get engaged in the game physically.

It’s exactly the same style of game the Panthers play.
