Cats ink the last of their restricted free agents

The Florida Panthers have agreed to terms with defenseman MacKenzie Weegar, inking the 23-year-old to a one-year, two-way deal.

Weegar, who spent most of the last three years in the minors, played his first three NHL games with the Panthers late in the 2016-17 season. In those three games Weegar averaged 17:27 TOI, registered three shots on goal, and racked up 4 PIM to go along with an even rating.

The Panthers drafted Weegar in the seventh round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. The former Halifax Moosehead has played for the Cincinnati Cyclones (ECHL) and the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage, Portland Pirates and Springfield Thunderbirds since signing his entry-level contract.
