The Florida Panthers have signed Alex Petrovic to a one-year deal worth roughly $1.8 million, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Petrovic had one goal and 13 assists in 49 games with the Panthers last season. He doesn't provide much in terms of offense, but he can play a steady defensive game. Petrovic also tends to play with an edge to his game. The 25-year-old doesn't have any fantasy value going into next season. Jun 30 - 7:50 PM

It will be interesting who the Vegas Golden Knights select off the Panthers' roster.

There apparently are quite a few interesting options based on the projected Panthers' protected list. At least one of Alex Petrovic, Jason Demers and Mark Pysyk will be available on the blueline and either Jussi Jokinen or Derek McKenzie will be exposed up front. It doesn't appear the Panthers have made any deals with Vegas to protect any of these players.

One player who could benefit from the Panthers' hiring of Bog Boughner as coach could be Alex Petrovic.

Petrovic is a rugged defenseman who plays the game a little like Boughner did when the latter was known as the "Boogieman" during his time in the NHL. It must be said, however, that Petrovic has more offensive potential than Boughner ever did. If Boughner gets the Florida head coaching gig, look for him to take Petrovic under his wing.
