Florida Panthers tender qualifying offers to seven restricted free agents

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

Cats retain rights to key group of young players, cut four others loose.

The Florida Panthers have tendered qualifying offers to seven of their restricted free agents and declined to make offers to four more.  The five on the NHL roster receiving offers are defenseman Erik Gudbranson, defenseman Dmitry Kulikov, defenseman Dylan Olsen, right wing Jimmy Hayes and forward Brandon Pirri. The Cats also tendered San Antonio Rampage forwards Garrett Wilson and Ryan Martindale, who was recently acquired from the Edmonton Oilers.  The offers mean the Panthers organization retains rights to the players and has the ability to match any offer made by another club.

Four other players, prospects Steven Anthony, Jonathan Hazen, Anthony Luciani and Mattias Lindstrom, were not tendered offers and will become unrestricted free agents.
