Tuesday Offseason Caterwaul: Florida Panthers Open Forum

Berger and UConn fall to UMass-Lowell

Florida Panthers prospect Carter Berger had one shot on goal, blocked a shot, and finished with an even rating in Connecticut’s 2-1 loss to UMass-Lowell last night. Berger, a fourth round choice in 2019 NHL Entry Draft, is still looking for his first point of the season. The sophomore defenseman is even in the three games he has played for the 1-3-1 Huskies. Berger had 10  points in 31 games as a freshman.
