Panthers get Barch in trade with Devils, sign Boyes and Gilbert to 1-year deals

SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers reacquired right wing Krys Barch in a trade with the New Jersey Devils, and signed centre Brad Boyes and defenceman Tom Gilbert to one-year contracts.

Barch came back to the Panthers, along with a seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft, for centre Scott Timmins on Saturday. The Devils also got Florida's sixth-round pick in next year's draft.

Barch has played in 326 NHL games with Dallas, Florida and New Jersey.

Boyes and Gilbert had been with the Panthers on tryout deals. Boyes had 35 points last season for the New York Islanders, and Gilbert is a veteran of 447 NHL games with Minnesota and Edmonton.

The Panthers open the regular season in Dallas on Thursday.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
