Lindhagen has been OK. Again you can’t fault his effort but there’s too little point production at the end of the day. Having said that, is he a forward or is he a defenceman? I’m not sure and I don’t think he has known either this season.

Jono Bullard
A positive from the season. Superb skater and looked comfortable playing in defence or on the forward line. Wouldn’t be disappointed if he returned.

Andy Haywood
Pretty certain that if Dan Green wasn’t ready to replace Wiikman in nets in Sheffield then this guy would have, seemingly it was the only position hasn’t got on his resume for the season. One of the very few shining lights in a pretty average team. Mr Consistent personified.

Antoine Marie-Jeanne
Smooth skater, defensively OK, offensively OK, does a decent job. Wouldn’t be sad to see him back as his versatility is a bonus. Would’ve liked to have seen more goals though.

Adam Reddish
The star of the blueline for me. Always kept things basic at the back, perhaps on account of it not being his naturally favoured position and hence cautious, but seldom made mistakes and his positioning was exemplary – quite surprising when you consider he’s a de facto forward. Maybe made to look better by being paired with average defencemen throughout the season, but that’s not Lindhagen’s problem.

Erik was brought in as the ‘Evan Mosey Replacement’ and aren’t they big shoes to fill?! He has the distinction of playing every game in all competitions this season, it’s a shame I’m talking about this as an achievement but it is one nonetheless, most Panthers fans will understand! Despite joining us as a forward, Erik has played more on defence but has made the switch seamlessly, his win at the Panthers awards night for ‘Most Consistent Player’ is well deserved and I would love to see him as a Panther next season.
