Panthers_Jonathan_Huberdeau_2013Jonathan Huberdeau is finding out that winning the NHL’s rookie of the year award brings nice perks.

The latest one came Monday as he spent his off day at Homestead-Miami Speedway tooling around the 1 1/2 mile oval in a souped up Shelby Cobra Mustang thanks to his friends at Ford.

“It was pretty powerful,” said Huberdeau, who bought himself a Mustang convertible not long after arriving in South Florida last year. His track exploits will be featured on the South Florida Ford YouTube page.
