No information available at this time (Updated 5/21/13).
Erik Gudbranson has not played in over a week and will finish the season with four assists and 47 PIMs in 32 games. He should be healthy well before the start of the 2013-14 campaign. (Updated 4/27/13).
Erik Gudbranson made the jump to the NHL, registering two goals and six assists in 72 games this past season with the Panthers. The former first-round, third-overall pick in 2011, has a big shot from the point and passing ability worthy of becoming a decent fantasy play for years to come. Gudbranson may still be a year or two away from making a leap into fantasy relevance, but should be viewed as a solid long-term keeper option. His path to contributing offensively isn't the clearest, as the Panthers will rely on Brian Campbell, Dmitry Kulikov and the newly-signed veteran, Filip Kuba on the power play. Regardless, Gudbranson is a name well worth remembering. (Updated 8/14/12)
