Florida Panthers Executive Vice President and General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to terms with D Michael Matheson on an entry-level contract. Matheson will report to San Antonio (AHL) on an amateur try-out.
"Michael is a talented, young, mobile, hard-working defenseman who we are pleased to have signed," said Tallon. "Since being selected in the first round of the NHL draft in 2012, Michael has led Boston College to three consecutive NCAA appearances, while also serving as the team's captain this past season. He is another one of our top prospects who will continue to develop his game playing while playing in the American Hockey League."
