Reilly Smith and several of his Florida teammates are hungry to get back to the postseason and advance further.
"Last year didn't end the way we wanted it to," he said. "We did some great things with our team ... but there's still the big one at the end of the tunnel that we didn't come close enough to. There's a bitter taste in our mouths and we definitely have enough skill in our dressing room to get back to that point." Smith received a five-year contract extension for $25 million in the summer after he scored 25 goals and 50 points in 82 games last season. He also led the Panthers with four goals and eight points in six playoff matches. Sep 23 - 8:48 AM

The Florida Panthers have signed Reilly Smith to a five-year extension reportedly worth $25 million.

The 25-year-old had a solid 2015-16 campaign, as he scored a career-high 25 goals and 50 points in 82 games last season. He added four goals and four assists in six games in the postseason. Smith still has one year remaining on his current deal at $3.425 million, which means this extension will kick-in starting in 2017-18. Florida has now locked up core players like Aleksander Barkov, Vincent Trocheck, Nick Bjugstad, Aaron Ekblad and Smith to long-term deals.
