Florida Panthers v Calgary Flames

The Florida Panthers announced today that they have signed forward Juho Lammikko, who was on the club’s reserve list, to a one-year, two-way contract.

According to CapFriendly, the deal will pay Lammikko $725K at the NHL level and $100K at the AHL level.

Lammikko, 24, appeared in 22 games with Metallurg Magnitogorsk of the Kontinental Hockey League this season, registering six goals and eight points.

After not re-upping with the Cats after his entry-level contract expired, he spent the 2019-20 season with Kärpät of Finland’s top-level Liiga, ranking second on the team with 51 points (22G/29A) over 57 games.

Originally selected by Florida in the third round (65th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, the 6-foot-2, 191-pound native of Noormarkku, Finland made his NHL debut in the 2018-19 season, playing in 40 regular season games with the Panthers and posting six assists.

He has played in 143 career AHL regular season games with the Springfield Thunderbirds (2016-17 to 2018-19) and Portland Pirates (2015-16), amassing 20 goals and 57 points.

Prior to his professional career, Lammikko played two seasons for the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League from 2014-15 to 2015-16, producing 99 points (40G/59A) over 123 games.

Welcome back, Juho.
