The Florida Panthers missed the 5 PM deadline to sign their bluechip defensive prospect, Eric Gudbranson, and will send him back to the Kingston Frontenacs of the OHL as a result.

Looks like we will have to wait until next season to see this year’s 3rd overall pick make the big club.  For what it’s worth, the kid received rave reviews from the coaching staff and general manager.
