SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -The Florida Panthers signed center Jozef Stumpel to a two-year contract extension Friday.
The 34-year-old Stumpel has played in 147 games for the Panthers in the past two seasons and had 38 goals and 71 assists. He scored 23 goals last season - a career high.
"Jozef is a proven playmaker who has fit in very well playing along with our core nucleus of forwards over the past two seasons," coach and general manager Jacques Martin said. "He gives us flexibility in our lineup, as he can play center or on the wing, as well as on special teams."
In his 13-year-NHL career, Stumpel has appeared in more than 900 games and scored 189 goals with 468 assists.
