On Monday, the Florida Panthers announced that they re-signed defenseman Casey Fitzgerald to a one-year deal, and prospect John Ludvig to a two-year deal, each with a $775,000 AAV.
We have agreed to terms with defenseman Casey Fitzgerald on a one-year, two-way contract.

Fitzgerald, 26, appeared in 6 games for the Panthers last season, including two in the playoffs, after being claimed off waivers in January. With no goals and 9 assists in his 63 games of experience between his time with the Buffalo Sabres and Panthers the past three seasons, re-signing Fitzgerald represents a depth signing to round out the team’s defensive depth.
