Though it's taken longer than many would have liked, Jonathan Huberdeau has agreed a two-year, $6.5 million deal with the Florida Panthers, according to NHL insider Bob McKenzie. The contract has an AAV of $3.25 million per season. The 22-year-old winger, and former Calder Trophy winner, had 15 goals and 39 assists for 54 points in 79 games in 2014-15 to lead the club in scoring.
