Panthers sign John McFarland to ELC

Can't accuse the Cats of inactivity following the end of their season, at least over the past three days, as 19 year-old Saginaw Spirit forward John McFarland is now under contract with the Florida Panthers, who drafted the 6'-192 lb center with the 33rd overall pick in June of 2010.

Anyone who saw McFarland participate in last summer's rookie camp left marveled by his deft stickhandling and remarkable speed easily on par or better than that of his NHL stablemates.

He is currently ranked 7th overall in Florida's prospect system by Hockey's Future.
