Florida Panthers Prospect Roundup: March 5, 2012

Moose Jaw forward Quinton Howden, shown here in the Phantom Zone, is the Panthers' only 30 goal scorer in the CHL.

With the Hockey's Future Spring Rankings released last month, and various additions/subtractions/movements of a few kids around the organization, I thought it would be a good time to update my list of the Top 20 Florida Panthers Prospects for the final quarter of the 2011-12 season. The list will be at the end of the roundup, so feel free to ask any questions in the comments section.

San Antonio Rampage 2, Chicago Wolves 1

The final game of the annual rodeo trip took place in Chicago with a Swedish battle in the net, between Jacob Markstrom and Eddie Lack, the second meeting between the two. Markstrom won the first game between the two former teammates (Lack was Markstrom's backup with Bryanas IF in 2009) with a 2-1 win on January 28th, 2011. The game also featured short-lived former Panthers Byron Bitz and Steve Reinprecht. The game was scoreless until eight minutes into the second period with Wolves defensemen Yann Sauve goal. Greg Rallo tied the game during the third with a powerplay goal, his 10th point of the rodeo trip, and five minutes later Nolan Yonkman scored his second goal of the season to win the game. With the win the Rampage go 7-3-0-1 on the annual rodeo trip with a .681 winning percentage, the best in team history.

San Antonio Rampage 2, Houston Aeros 1

After losing six straight games to Houston, the Rampage have won four straight games, outscoring them 14-8. Returning home from the annual rodeo trip, 11,382 Rampage fans packed into the AT&T Center, the third highest in the team history. Jacob Markstrom made his second straight start, his first since December 30th and 31st. Bill Thomas scored the game's first goal, his sixth in his last 11 games, in the second period. Eric Selleck and Aeros forward Jon DiSalvatore traded the goals early in the third period, with Markstrom shutting the door giving the Rampage the win over their I-10 rivals.

The Rampage are currently 5th in the Western Conference (tied for 4th with the Chicago Wolves and division rival Abbotsford Heat) at 67 points and a 32-23-2-1 record.
