Vinnie Hinostroza excited to play for the PanthersOctober 17, 2020 | 05:49 AM

Vinnie Hinostroza is excited to be playing with the Florida Panthers. Analysis: The former Coyote became a free agent after Arizona did not give him a qualifying offer. He chose to sign a one-year deal with Florida and he couldn't be happier. "I'm in the best shape of my life," said the 26-year-old. "I feel like I'm in the best mental space I've ever been in. I think my game's really come together. I've learned a lot. I'm not really scared of anything in the league anymore. I'm just excited to come to Florida and play. For me, it's a new beginning, a new opportunity, and a fresh start with some new teammates." Hinostroza had only five goals and 22 points for the Coyotes last season but could be in line for more as he should be a middle-six forward next season. He should be a waiver wire pickup at best at the start of next season in deeper leagues.
