SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive VP & General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has signed C Nick Bjugstad to an entry level contract.
“We are extremely pleased to have signed Nick,” said Tallon. “He is a young, talented and physical forward that excelled during his time at the University of Minnesota. Nick is one of our top prospects who has great vision at both ends of the ice and possesses a strong hockey sense. We look forward to his continued development as he takes this next step in his hockey career.”

Barring a miracle, the Panthers’ season will end on April 27 in Tampa. As has been the case every spring since 2001 — save for last year and the lockout of 2005 — the Panthers will watch the playoffs and not participate in them.
“We’re trying to keep our competitive level extremely high,” said second-year coach Kevin Dineen, who led the Panthers to the playoffs for the first time since 2000 last season.
“I think I said from Day 1 we wanted a healthy, quality environment. It’s no fun right now. We’re not having fun. But we’re still making strides trying to make this a place in which we get better no matter the situation.”
Even though the playoffs aren’t forthcoming for a team that has won two consecutive games just twice this year, that doesn’t mean the Panthers are giving up.
Robak received 5 for the cross-check plus a 10 and game misconduct. Sestito did not return and no update as of this time.

Panthers general manager Dale Tallon confirmed to The Miami Herald on Thursday night that 40-year-old Alex Kovalev signed his retirement papers and is no longer a member of the Florida organization.
Kovalev, who signed a one-year deal after the lockout ended, hadn't played for the Panthers since getting nine-plus minutes in a loss at Pittsburgh on Feb. 22.
