NHL Rumors: Panthers Looking To Sign Star Center

According to The Fourth Period, the Panthers are linked to pending UFA Evgeni Malkin.

Malkin's future in Pittsburgh is in jeopardy, and for the first time in his 981-game career, he could be wearing a different jersey. The Panthers could be the kind of team to land him, as they just put together an excellent season and are looking to win their first Stanley Cup. Adding a star like Malkin could help them achieve that goal. 

Plenty of teams will be pursuing Malkin if he officially hits the open market. Let's see if the Panthers are the lucky club to sign him.
