Panthers sign Kovalev to one-year contract

Alex Kovalev has made the opening night roster for the Florida Panthers.

Kovalev signed a one-year contract with the Panthers that Bob McKenzie is reporting is worth $1 million and also contains bonuses for games played.

Kovalev came to camp with Florida on a tryout contract after playing last season in the Kontinental Hockey League. He last played in the NHL at the end of the 2010-11 season with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Teams must announce their 23-man rosters for opening night by 5 p.m. ET Friday.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
