Brad Mills / USA Today

Last season's first overall draft selection Aaron Ekblad is having a phenomenal rookie season that's put him in contention for the Calder Memorial Trophy.

The 19-year-old defenseman continued to impress Sunday, tying Florida Panthers great Ed Jovanovski for first all-time among Panthers rookie defensemen in goals with his 10th of the season.

Jovanovski hit the mark in 1995-96 and hasn't played a game in the NHL since his contract was bought out by the Panthers in 2014.
