Brandon Montour News
Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour had a huge game against Anaheim on Sunday, putting together a four-point night with a goal and three assists. Two of his points came in the third period when the Panthers turned a tight game into a 5-3 win. Montour joined San Jose's Erik Karlsson as the second defenseman this season to register multiple three-point performances. The former Duck didn't register any points in three games between his two efforts, so he will need to work on his consistency, but it's still been a superb start to the season from him, as Montour boasts four goals and eight assists through 11 games. The 12 points put him fifth in scoring among all defensemen.
Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour (upper body) will return to the lineup on Friday against Tampa Bay. The 28-year-old gets back to action after missing two games, and he is set to be a popular man among fantasy managers with Aaron Ekblad (lower body) out for multiple weeks. Montour managed a career-high 37 points last season and has opened the 2022-23 campaign with one goal, seven shots and four hits in three games. Lucas Carlsson is moving out of the lineup to make room for Montour.
Brandon Montour inked a three-year contract with the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, which carries a $3.5 million AAV. The 27-year-old defenseman was set to become an unrestricted free agent. The former second-round draft pick appeared to be headed for great things when he scored 42 points in his second NHL season with the Anaheim Ducks but he then slipped both offensively and defensively and ended up with the Buffalo Sabres for parts of three seasons. He was acquired by Florida towards the end of the 2020-21 season and scored two goals and recorded four points in 12 games. He also improved defensively with an 8 +/-. He was held scoreless in six playoff games. Montour isn't much of a fantasy option unless he rediscovers his early-career form.
Florida Panthers defenseman Brandon Montour will make his debut with his new team on Thursday, facing off against the Tampa Bay Lightning. The 27-year-old was acquired from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a 2021 third-round draft pick on Saturday. Like most Buffalo players, Montour has not had a memorable 2020-2021 campaign (just 14 points in 38) but he possesses enough skill offensively to be worth monitoring in deeper fantasy formats.
