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.

Darling has not played well since signing a big deal in Carolina and is now headed to unrestricted free agency after being bought out. Darling appeared in just eight NHL games last year, spending most of the year in the AHL, where he was 5-8-0 with a 3.40 GAA and .882 SV%.
The Panthers have acquired Dominic Toninato from the Avalanche for Jacob MacDonald.
Toninato, who appeared in 37 games with the Avalanche in 2017-18, played in just two NHL games last season. The 25-year-old had 14 goals and 15 assists (29 points) in 57 AHL games and has a chance to crack the Florida roster as their fouth-line centre in 2020.
