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.

I've been so fortunate, blessed, to play a long time with some great players and be on power plays, play in some great cities and stuff. It's been fun.
