Panthers sign Jacques to two-way contract

Jean-Francois Jacques, who spent most of last season in the American Hockey League, signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Florida Panthers on Thursday. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Jacques, a 27-year-old left wing, was held without a point in six games with the Anaheim Ducks last season. But in 65 games with the club's AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, he had 21 goals and 19 assists.

A 2003 second-round pick of the Edmonton Oilers, Jacques has nine goals and eight assists in 166 NHL games with the Oilers and Ducks.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
