|Assets:||Has excellent offensive instincts, setup ability and an understanding of what to do with the puck on his stick. Is silky smooth, crafty and has a sneaky-good, accurate wrister. Can play both wing and center.|
|Flaws:||Lacks strength, so he tends to lose several puck battles in the corners. Must continue to improve his intensity. His play without the puck, as well as his face-off skills (if he plays center) are generally lacking.|
|Career Potential:||Solid scoring forward.|

Fleischmann has been the Panthers' most consistent offensive threat this year, but he hasn't been the same player that racked up 27 goals and 61 points in 2011-12.
