Ekblad spent a team-high 24:29 on ice during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Senators.
This is not an unfamiliar event for the Cats as Ekblad has been their clear No. 1 defenseman for a few seasons. However, Ekblad has never ended the season with the highest average time on ice over his five campaigns with Florida. As of now, he averages 23:36, almost a minute higher than Keith Yandle, who is second on the team with 22:40.
