4. D Jay Bouwmeester ranks first in the NHL averaging 27:20 of ice time per game and has recorded nine points (6-3-9) in his last 16 games played. With his 50th goal of his NHL career on Thursday, Feb. 5, Bouwmeester became just the second Panthers defenseman to record 50 tallies while playing for the Cats, joining Robert Svehla (61).
