Florida Panthers' forward Matthew Tkachuk breaks the franchise record for most points in a season, including playoffs, with an outstanding performance in their second-round series against the Maple Leafs

In a remarkable feat, Florida Panthers’ forward Matthew Tkachuk has set a new franchise record for the most points in a season, including playoffs, with a staggering 121 points. This achievement came during last night’s game one of the second-round playoff series between the Florida Panthers and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Tkachuk contributed three assists to the Panthers’ 4-2 victory, bringing his playoff total to 5 goals and 9 assists, or 14 points, in 8 games this season, also giving him point 121, 122, and 123 when including the regular season.

During the regular season, Tkachuk played in 79 games, scoring 40 goals and registering 69 assists for a total of 109 points. The combined regular season and playoff points put Tkachuk at 123, shattering the previous franchise record of 120. With the Panthers currently leading the series 1-0 against the Maple Leafs, Tkachuk still has time to further extend this record.

The trade that sent Matthew Tkachuk from the Calgary Flames to the Florida Panthers in the summer of 2022 saw Jonathan Huberdeau, MacKenzie Weegar, prospect Cole Schwindt, and a conditional first-round pick in 2025 head to Calgary. Tkachuk’s first season with the Panthers has undoubtedly been a memorable one, with many fans claiming that the Panthers emerged as the clear winners of the trade. As the Panthers continue their playoff run and the Flames watch from home after missing the playoffs, this sentiment seems well-founded.

Tkachuk played a huge role in the round 1 upset where the Florida Panthers made a comeback from 3 games to 1 down in the series against the Boston Bruins. The Boston Bruins had the best regular season in NHL history, and were seen as the clear favorites to win the cup this year. Matthew Tkachuk contributed 11 points in the series against the Bruins, leading them on a 3 game winning streak to win games 5, 6, and 7. Tkachuk then contributed 3 points in game 1 against the Maple Leafs to give them a 1-0 lead. Matthew Tkachuk Panthers record
