"We did it together; obviously, it's pretty cool to get the franchise record, but - all about the team, I couldn't do it without all the guys I'm playing with." Huberdeau said after setting the record.

Huberdeau overtakes teammate Aleksander Barkov, who previously set the franchise single-season points record with 96 points in 2018-19.

"He deserves it the way he's been playing. It couldn't happen to a better guy," Barkov said after the game Sunday. "We still have a lot of games left, so it's going to be fun to see where he ends up. I'm lucky to be his teammate."

The 2021-22 season has been a record-breaking year for Huberdeau, who has set three Florida franchise records this season.

On March 26, Huberdeau set the franchise record for most games played in Panthers' history at 659 games and counting.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers odds and best bet

  Atlanta Hawks vs. Cleveland Cavaliers odds and best bet Get ready for Trae Young vs. Darius Garland.Cleveland lost against Brooklyn on Tuesday. The Cavs did not play poorly. They were just undermanned against a team featuring a couple of the best scorers in the NBA. Guard Darius Garland showed the future of the team is not that far off though. It is just too bad how ravaged Cleveland has been by injuries this season because its peak was impressive.

Huberdeau had a four-assist game in a March 10, 6-3 win over the Philadelphia Flyers, breaking the single-season franchise record for assists in a season, which currently sits at 73. Huberdeau broke the record he previously held, initially setting the mark with a 63-assist season in 2018-19.

A 10-year veteran, Huberdeau holds the Panthers' franchise record in games played (659), assists (403) and points (594).

Report: Mavericks' Luka Doncic may miss playoff opener against Jazz .
Doncic was injured Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs. Late in the third quarter, Doncic appeared to land awkwardly after leaving his feet to make a pass. He hobbled off the floor, grabbing his left leg. Luka Doncic strained left calf injury:"It looks like it’s something with his left leg, when he jumps he favors the left leg and doesn’t land on it instead he chooses to land on the right leg," @Nunez_MarcoA tells me.#MFFL #NBATwitter #NBA75 pic.twitter.com/79ldF2XAqA— Landon Buford (@LandonBuford) April 11, 2022 Initially, the Mavericks were optimistic the injury wasn't serious, calling it a mild calf strain.
