Breaking late but good news regardless of the timing:
#FlaPanthers new six year deal with C Nick Bjugstad keeps him through RFA years as well as first UFA ones as well. Nice deal for both.— George Richards (@GeorgeRichards) December 31, 2014
So Bjugstad is now Piece Number One to be secured via a long contract among a rich and growing prospect camp in Florida. More to come...
UPDATE: It's official.
