Borgstrom was drafted by the Panthers in the first round (23rd overall) in the 2016 NHL draft.
“Henrik is a highly-talented, exciting and dynamic young forward who has been a dominant player over his last two seasons in Denver,” said general manager Dale Tallon in a press release. “In a short time he has put together an accomplished career in the college game, including a national championship. We are thrilled to have him take the next step in his development with the Panthers. Henrik’s addition to our skilled, young core of players further strengthens our foundation for success for years to come.”
In 40 games this season with the University of Denver, the 20-year-old had 23 goals, 29 assists, 52 points.
The Finnish forward is a nominee for the 2018 Hobey Baker award along with Ryan Donato, Dylan Gambrell, and Dylan Sikura.
