Top 10 Moments of the Season

Video: ANA@FLA: Huberdeau scores in season debut

Sceviour's hat trick. #DadSquad stays perfect. Huberdeau's return.

There were plenty of good moments from this year to look back on, and our own Jameson Olive did just that, compiling his 10 favorite moments from the 2016-17 campaign.

There's some Jagr history, a clutch last-minute goal, a huge breakout for a previously unheralded winger and much more, so make sure to check it out.

Reilly Rewind  

Here's a neat stat - Reilly Smith was a top-10 forward in the league at penalty kill effectiveness this season.

That, and Smith's offseason mantra of "Faster, Quicker, Stronger" are the main takeaways fromthe first Season Rewind post of the offseason.  

While we're just a few weeks into the offseason, Smith's already hard at work. "I'd be lying if I said the process didn't start already," he said last weekend at HockeyFest. "When the offseason is slow like this, you're itching to get back in the gym as fast as you can."

The 26-year-old Smith finished the season with a 15-22-37 line, not quite the 25-goal season he had in his first season with the Cats, but with a shooting percentage below career norms, it's reasonable to expect a strong bounce back from the winger next season.
