The Panthers have signed Vladislav Kolyachonok to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Kolyachonok, 18, was a second-round pick of the Panthers this summer. The 6-foot-1, 184 lbs. defenseman had four goals and 25 assists (29 points) in 53 games in his first season with the Flint Firebirds (OHL).
The Panthers have signed Denis Malgin to a one-year extension worth $750K.
Malgin spent the last two seasons splitting time between the AHL and NHL. This past season, Malgin had seven goals and nine assists (16 points) in 50 games with Florida and 14 points (4G / 10A) in 13 games with Springfield. With the Panthers adding Brett Connolly and Owen Tippett set to make the roster this fall, Malgin will be limited to a bottom-6 role in 2020.
The Panthers acquired Gustav Bouramman from the Wild for future considerations.
Bouramman was a seventh-round pick of the Wild in 2015. Since being drafted, Bouramman has just one goal and three assists (four points) in 28 AHL games with the Iowa Wild. He will report to Springfield (AHL) to start 2020.
The Panthers signed MacKenzie Weegar to a one-year deal worth $1.6M.
Weegar had 15 points (4G / 11A) in 64 games with the Panthers last season, while ranking sixth among Panthers defensemen in TOI/GM (16:58). Weegar will likely open the 2020 season as the Panthers No.6 defenseman.
The Panthers signed Ian McCoshen to a one-year, two-way contract.
McCoshen split the 2018-19 season between the AHL and NHL. McCoshen had one goal and one assist in 19 games with Florida and nine assists in 38 games with Springfield. McCoshen will likely open the 2020 season in the AHL yet again.
The Panthers have re-signed Sam Montembeault to a one-year, two-way contract.
Montembeault was forced into NHL action last year, going 4-3-2 wth a 3.04 GAA and .894 SV% in 11 games. Montembeault currently projects to serve as Sergei Bobrovsky’s backup following Roebrto Luongo’s retirement and the James Reimer trade but things could change before the start of the 2020 campaign.
The Panthers have re-signed Thomas Schemitsch to a one-year, two-way contract.
Schemitsch was a third-round pick in 2015 and is coming off of 24 points (9G / 15A) in his second full AHL season. Schemitsch has good size (6-foot-4, 206 lbs.) but remains too low on the depth chart to make a push for a roster spot this fall.
The Panthers have re-signed Dryden Hunt to a one-year, two-way contract.
Hunt split his 2019 season between the NHL and AHL, posting 44 points (23G / 21A) in 51 games with Springfield (AHL) and 10 points (3G / 7A) in 31 games with Florida (NHL). Despite moderate NHL success, Hunt will likely start 2020 in the AHL.
The Panthers have re-signed Jayce Hawryluk to a one-year, two-way contract.
Hawryluk was selected No.32 overall in 2014 and finally cracked the NHL roster in 2019. The 23-year-old right winger had 12 points (7G / 5A) in 42 games with the Panthers, while averaging just 9:26 TOI/gm. With Brett Connolly and Noel Acciari singing this summer and Owen Tippett knocking on the door to make the team in training camp, Hawryluk could start the year in the AHL again.
