Jonathan Huberdeau and the Panthers


Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon is scouring the market for help up front, as he and his staff are searching for a top-six forward to add to their roster.

The Panthers have been actively looking for a goal-scoring forward, but it's unclear if they are inching closer to a trade.

Tallon has plenty of salary cap space to work with -- the club has just under $9 million in current cap space -- if he were to add a player with significant dollars left on his contract.

A number of teams, including the Panthers, have reportedly inquired about Buffalo Sabres left wing Evander Kane, though a trade is not believed to be imminent.
