The Panthers strengthened their blue line Monday when they agreed to terms with veteran defenseman Dennis Seidenberg pending a signed contract later this afternoon.
 
Seidenberg, 28, who spent the past 2 seasons with the Carolina Hurricanes, comes to the Panthers after having his best season offensively, scoring 30 points (five goals, 25 assists) in 70 games. He also led the Hurricanes with 160 blocked shots, ranking him 17th in the NHL. He added six points last season in 16 playoff games with the Hurricanes.
 
Seidenberg, a native of Schwenningen, West Germany, had 15 assists in 2007-08 despite missing some 20 games with an ankle injury. He played 52 games between Phoenix and Carolina in 2006-07, scoring two goals and six assists.
 
Drafted in 2001 by Philadelphia in the sixth round (172nd overall), Seidenberg split his first three seasons in the NHL between the Flyers and their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate before being traded to Phoenix in January of 2006.
