The Florida Panthers have signed restricted free agent forwards Bobby Butler and Eric Selleck, the team announced Monday.

Butler receives a two-year contract and Selleck a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Butler, acquired earlier this month in a trade with the Nashville Predators, split the 2012-13 season between the Predators and New Jersey Devils, combining for four goals and 11 points in 34 games.

Selleck played two games for the Panthers, recording an assist and 17 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
