Florida Panthers: The Door is Open for Grigori Denisenko This Season

The 2023-24 season is shaping up to be an important one for Florida Panthers forward prospect Grigori Denisenko, the team’s 15th overall pick of the 2018 Draft.

To-date, the 23-year-old has recorded 7 assists in 26 NHL games over three seasons, with the majority — 18 of them — occurring last season.

Now coming off his entry level contract, and signed to a two-year league minimum AAV contract this summer, it is time for Denisenko to secure his position within the team.

Looking at how the Panthers’ forward roster was built this summer, it is likely that General Manager Bill Zito planned for this.
