Jonathan Huberdeau Will Be Ready For Panthers Camp

Huberdeau_2013Jonathan Huberdeau is bigger, healthier, and ready to go.

That’s the word out of Florida on Thursday as the reigning Calder Trophy winner — who underwent hip surgery in May — will be available when the Panthers open camp on Sept. 12.

“He’ll be ready for training camp,” Florida GM Dale Tallon told the Miami Herald.

Huberdeau, 20, spent a considerable amount of time rehabbing his hip this summer, and didn’t resume skating until Aug. 5. But he does appear to have put his off-ice time to good use — according to Yahoo’s Nick Cotsonika, Huberdeau added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame.
