Will the club's leading scorer last season sign on the line which is dotted?

According to TSN insider Bob McKenzie, the Florida Panthers have offered restricted free agent winger Jonathan Huberdeau a two-year contract extension.

The former Calder Trophy-winner and his agent Allan Walsh are currently considering the offer on the table.

Rumors are swirling that other teams are considering presenting the 22-year-old forward with an offer sheet, something the Panthers are very likely to match.

In the case they do not choose to match, the compensation for Huberdeau would be draft picks determined by the AAV of the offer sheet.

AVERAGE ANNUAL VALUE COMPENSATION
Less than $1,205,377 Nothing
$1,205,377-to-$1,826,328 Third-round pick
$1,826,328-to-$3,652,659 Second-round pick
$3,652,659-to-$5,478,986 First and third-round picks
$5,478,986-to-$7,305,316 First, second and third-round picks
$7,305,316-to-$9,131,645 Two firsts, a second and third-round picks
$9,131,645 or greater Four first-round picks

Huberdeau rebounded from the dreaded "sophomore slump" in 2013-14 to lead the Cats in scoring last season with 54 points on 15 goals and 39 assists, all career-highs.

Here's hoping the two sides can wrap this up today and have the three-year vet in camp come Thursday.
