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 have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.
