Panthers Make 5th Free Agent Signing In Recent Weeks

The Florida Panthers have been busy the past few weeks adding to their depth. They've signed two more free agents today, making it five new signings in recent weeks. 

Forward Wilmer Skoog is the latest, signed to a one-year entry-level contract for next season. 

The 24-year-old played most of this season with the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL, recording 19 goals and 27 points in 44 games along with a plus-5 rating. 

In four years at Boston University prior to turning pro, the 6'2" forward compiled 40 goals and 76 points in 103 games.

Also today, the Panthers signed 6-foot center Oliver Okuliar out of Slovakia to a one-year ELC. He recorded 24 goals and 45 points in 52 games with Hradec Kralove in the Czech league this season, his 3rd straight strong season there.

Skoog and Okuliar join other recent newcomers Mikulas Hovorka out of Czechia, and two NCAA free agents, goaltender Cooper Black and forward Ben Steeves.
