The Panthers have extended training camp invitations to a pair of NHL veteran defensemen Martin Skoula and Christian Backman. Both are former first-round draft picks.
The Panthers haven’t signed either player, but both will fly with the team Saturday to Nova Scotia for the start of training camp Sunday in Port Hawkesbury, and will have a chance to earn a contract.
from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
...Again, we’re talking about Martin Skoula here.
Lemaire simply loves him, as displayed by Skoula’s ice time in critical situations. Late in tight games, one constant will be Skoula ... on the ice ... every other shift.
Lemaire has complete faith in him, which is why Lemaire asked Risebrough three times at June’s NHL draft, “What’s going on with Skoula?“He’s the only guy he cared about,” said Risebrough, who then got on the horn and re-signed the veteran to a two-year contract.
