Panthers sign Brad Boyes, Tom Gilbert
The Florida Panthers signed forward Brad Boyes and defenseman Tom Gilbert, two players who had been with the team during training camp on a professional tryout, to contracts Saturday.

The Florida Panthers signed forward Brad Boyes and defenseman Tom Gilbert, two players who had been with the team during training camp on a professional tryout, to contracts Saturday, the club announced on Twitter.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed. Chris Johnston of Rogers Sportsnet reported the Boyes contract is one year for $1 million and the Gilbert deal is also for one season.

The 31-year-old Boyes had 10 goals and 35 points in 48 games for the New York Islanders last season, reviving his career alongside John Tavares and Matt Moulson on the team's top line after a disappointing year with the Buffalo Sabres in 2011-12.

Gilbert, 30, had three goals and 13 points in 43 games for the Minnesota Wild in 2012-13. He joined the Wild in a midseason trade the previous campaign after parts of six seasons with the Edmonton Oilers.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
