Florida Panthers Sign UFA Forward

The Florida Panthers have been searching for offense this entire offseason and it appears they will be receiving an early Christmas present, as according to Pierre LeBrun of TSN, the Panthers have signed Anthony Duclair to a contract.

Duclair who represented himself this offseason explained the move in a statement a few months ago. It was becoming quite a head-scratching move after the offers were drying up.  

Duclair's career high 23 goals came last season with the Ottawa Senators. Expect the Laval, Quebec native to get a look within the Panthers top-6 forwards where he can expect to either play with ex-teammate Alexander Wennberg from their Columbus Blue Jackets days.
