Video: Panthers' Ekblad scores first NHL goal - and it's a literal winner
Though there was no doubt he would remain with the club, 18 year-old seals his fate with gorgeous power play marker.
Florida Panthers rookie defenseman and top selection of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft Aaron Ekblad nails home the first goal of his young career in his ninth professional game. The Cats went on to defeat Philadelphia 2-1 in regulation with Ek's marker - on the man advantage via assists from Brian Campbell and Jimmy Hayes - standing tall as the evening's eventual gamewinner, November 1st in Sunrise.
