from Katie Strang of ESPN,

Fantasy owners, take note: Florida Panthers forward Nick Bjugstad's stock is steadily rising.

The 22-year-old appears primed for a breakout season this year and has been brimming with confidence during a stretch of stellar play recently. Thursday night, the former University of Minnesota standout tallied twice in the Panthers 3-2 shootout victory over the San Jose Sharks and got the difference-maker on his first shootout try of the season. Just two games prior, Bjugstad recorded a career-high four points.

Bjugstad reminds me of a young Joe Thornton. Oozes talent.
