Panthers Sign Defenseman To Extension

The Florida Panthers have signed Matt Kiersted to a two-year contract extension.

Kiersted appeared in 10 games with the Panthers this season, where he scored a goal and added an assist. He primarily played with the Charlotte Checkers, however. In 63 games with the AHL squad, he had five goals and 20 points.

Kiersted is trying to cement himself as a full-time NHL defenseman and very well could with the Panthers next season. Time will tell what happens on that front.
