The Florida Panthers have re-signed defenseman Gustav Forsling and forward Anthony Duclair to new contracts.

Forsling’s deal is for three years and carries an average annual value of $2.66 million.

The 25-year-old registered five goals. 12 assists and 17 points (all career-highs) in 43 regular season games during the 2020-21 season after being claimed off waivers from the Carolina Hurricanes. He added one goal and one assist in Florida’s first-round loss to the eventual Stanley Cup champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning

The former third round pick of the New York Rangers put up 10 goals and 32 points after signing a one-year, $1.7 million deal before the start of the season after he failed to work out an extension with the Ottawa Senators. The Duke led the team’s forwards with a career-high +27 rating, he also finished fifth on the team in assists (22) and even-strength points (29).

This has been quite the day in Pantherland. The future is bright!
