Observations

December 2018 – Hunt has been sent back down to the AHL. He got an extended look at the NHL level but only managed to put up one point in 13 games, so the Panthers decided it’s best to send him back down to gain some confidence.  Jokke Nevalainen

November 2018 – Hunt has been called up to the Panthers, and he made his season debut on November 19th against the Senators. Hunt has had a strong start to his season in the AHL where he’s scored eight goals and 12 points in 15 games.  Jokke Nevalainen

June 2018 – The 22-year-old Hunt finished his second season in the AHL with 23 goals and 46 points in 58 games. Both totals were second best on the team which is really good considering Hunt also played 11 games in the NHL where he scored just one assist. Hunt has a realistic chance to be a full-time NHL player next season.  Jokke Nevalainen

Oct 2017 – Dryden Hunt worked on his foot speed in the off season after completing his first pro year. Coming in with high expectations, he finished fourth among Springfield’s forwards in points and will look to continue to build. He even spent time in the ECHL in February of 2017. While he had a legitimate opportunity to win a job out of training camp (as spots were available) he was a bit lack luster. Florida would like to see consistent production from the skilled winger. – Joel Henderson

February 2016 – Hunt has signed an entry level deal with the Florida Panthers. Entering this season he was an undrafted overage player in the WHL. He has had a very productive season with 49 goals and 50 assists for 99 points through 62 games with the Moose Jaw Warriors which is good for second overall in the WHL. Earlier in the month he won WHL player of the week honors so It has been quite the month for Hunt in which he also scored four hat-tricks in five games. With his late breakout season, he had several NHL teams coveting him and ultimately chose the opportunity with the young Panthers organization. – Lee Rayson
