Write-Up on Panthers Forward John McFarland

As many Panthers fans already know, the club recently signed 33rd overall draft pick John McFarland to a 3 year entry-level contract.

What does he bring?

John McFarland is a very well rounded talent. He can score goals, pass the puck, and can handle himself in his own end. He is also a big kid and can battle physically upon his debut in the NHL/AHL.

What should Panthers fans be worried about?

Not much, last season in the OHL he was traded from Sudbury to Saginaw and put up just under one point-per-game. He has never been that flashy, he and the Panthers organization know what he’s capable of, and I don’t expect him to disappoint.

What are his OHL career statistics?

Regular Season – GP:171 G:66 A: 74 P:140

Playoffs- GP:22 G:9 A:7 P:16

This guy is a typical Panthers early draft pick; he works hard, he’s a team player, and his statistics are above average. Panthers fans should be excited about John’s debut within the next 2 seasons.
