Steven Hodges Signs Entry Level Contract with Florida Panthers

The Florida Panthers added another centerman to the fold on Sunday, enlisting 2012 third-round pick Steven Hodges to an entry level contract. Hodges, who last season skated for the Western Hockey League‘s Victoria Royals, accumulated 47 points in 52 games, stringing together a third consecutive 20+ goal season at the Major Junior Level.

 

Clocking in at 5’11” and 178 pounds, the speedy pivot’s strengths lie in his skating ability and impeccable hockey I.Q., with Hockey’s Future projecting the native of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories to slot in at a second-or-third line level. An area of concern, his two-way game desires improvement, with the website identifying it as the primary obstacle in his developmental path.

 

Hodges, at this juncture, looks to report to the San Antonio Rampage, where he will spend his first professional season grinding it out at the AHL level.
