Observations:

 

May 2014 – After failing to crack the Panthers lineup at the beginning of the 2013-2014 season, Quinton Howden was called up for another stint with the team, this time notching four goals and two assists in only 16 games. Still playing a defensive role with the team, Howden has proven he isn’t a liability at the NHL level and stands to have a good shot at making the team next season. Jake Patterson

 

February 2014 - Howden has nine points in his last 11 games for the Rampage. An improvement yes, but he still has just 21 points in 45 games. Ultimately a two-way forward with limited upside. Nathan Kanter

 

December 2013 - Howden has played the entire season for the Rampage and has just nine points in 22 games. Certainly more known for his two-way play than his scoring ability, he's going to still have to do better than this if he's going to get recalled to Florida. Nathan Kanter

 

October 2013 - With the influx of players to Florida this offseason (Boyes, Gomez, Crabb and draft pick Barkov), there was little room in the lineup for Howden, so he was appropriately assigned to San Antonio (AHL) in late September. It will be tough for him to make an impact at the NHL level this season with other young offensive options at Florida's disposal (Barkov, Huberdeau, Bjugstad, Shore). Nathan Kanter

 

April 2013 - Howden was once again called up to the big club March 19th due to injuries and after being a healthy scratch that night, he has stuck with Panthers for nine straight games, though in a very limited role. Through the nine games, he received just over nine minutes of ice time per game, including no time on the powerplay, so the rookie’s stat line has been understandably ineffective: zero points, a minus-1 rating, nine shots on goal and eight hits. The two-way forward will continue to play a limited role this season. He has good size and at times has caught defenders off guard with his speed so if he grabs a top-six role out of camp next season, the 21-year old winger could provide some (limited) fantasy value (again he also will face serious competition). In his current role he will continue to provide zero fantasy value. Nathan Kanter

 

January 2013 – With the Panthers suffering with several injuries up front, Howden was summoned from San Antonio and played his first NHL game. Praised for his leadership and two-way abilities, Howden’s debut will be forgettable as he was a minus-3. He has reasonably productive in the AHL 19 points in 41 games with two of his goals scored shorthanded. His nine goals are currently good for fourth on an offensively inept Rampage team. Jason Banks


June 2012 - Howden capped off his 4 year WHL career leading his Moose Jaw Warriors in scoring with 65 points in 52 games, and then adding another 15 points in 14 playoff games. Already having signed with the Panthers, Howden got his first taste of pro hockey in a 4 game try out with the AHL affiliate San Antonio Rampage. Expect him to start next season in the AHL, with the potential to get a look in the NHL at some point in 2013. Todd Poole

 

February 2012 – After getting a long look by the Florida Panthers brass, Quinton Howden has come back to junior and been a major impact player for the Moose Jaw Warriors. In 38 WHL games this season he has put up 54 points. Howden also represented Canada in the World Junior Championship and scored 3 goals and 3 assists in 6 games for the Bronze Medal winning Canadians. Look for Howden to continue his strong production and be the anchor of the Warriors offense heading into the playoffs. Zenon Herasymiuk

 

Fantasy Outlook: C

 

He projects to be a top-nine winger but the possibility for top-six upside is running out. Still a chance, but now a long shot.
