Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jonathan Huberdeau
Jonathan Huberdeau was born on June 4, 1993, in Saint-Jerome, Quebec. A product of the Quebec Major Junior League where he starred for the Saint John Sea Dogs, Huberdeau was selected third overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft by the Florida Panthers.

In 2010-11 Huberdeau notched 43 goals and 62 assists for the Sea Dogs and would help lead the club to the OMJHL championship. The club would go on to capture the 2011 Memorial Cup, defeating the host, Mississauga St. Michael's Majors, in the championship game. Huberdeau recorded a goal and an assist in the 3-1 victory and was awarded the Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy as the tournament's Most Valuable Player and was named to the tournament's All-Star Team.

With NHL games on hold due to the labour dispute, Huberdeau would begin the 2012-13 season in Saint John where he would continue to score at a prodigious pace. In 30 games for the club he recorded 16 goals and 29 assists for 45 points. When play resumed at the NHL level, Huberdeau cracked the Panthers lineup out of training camp. He would appear in all 48 games for the club during the shortened season, recording 14 goals and 17 assists for 31 points, tying him for tops among all first-year players with Nail Yakupov of the Edmonton Oilers. For his efforts he was awarded the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL's top rookie, the first player in Florida Panthers franchise history to accomplish the feat.

Huberdeau would appear in 76 games for the Panthers during the 2015-16 season. Spending much of the year on club's top line alongside Jaromir Jagr and Aleksander Barkov, he posted career-highs in goals, assists and points, with 20, 39 and 59.
