Ryan Whitney, Panthers Agree To One Year Deal

Oilers_Ryan_Whitney_2013The Florida Panthers have been busy adding a collection of veteran misfits recently and they added to that haul on Sunday night with the addition of defenseman Ryan Whitney.

Within the last few days the Panthers already signed Tim Thomas, Brad Boyes and defenseman Tom Gilbert to contracts after bringing each of them in on professional tryouts. Whitney had been on a tryout with the St. Louis Blues but didn’t find a spot on their roster so Florida decided to sign him too.

The contract, reported by TSN’s Bob McKenzie, is for one season and $900,000.
