MIAMI (AP) - Five-time All-Star defenseman Ed Jovanovski has agreed to a four-year contract to rejoin the Florida Panthers, who drafted him in 1994.
Goalie Jose Theodore and left wing Scottie Upshall also agreed to contracts, the Panthers said Friday shortly after the start of the NHL's free-agency period.
Theodore agreed to a two-year deal and Upshall accepted a four-year agreement.
Jovanovski has played in 1,019 games with Florida (1995-98), Vancouver (1998-2006) and Phoenix (2006-11), scoring 133 goals with 348 assists. He's a five-time All-Star.
