• Petrovic Signs Two-Year Deal With Panthers

    News: Alex Petrovic inked a two-year (one-way) contract with the Panthers on Wednesday.
    Analysis: The 23-year-old defender will get a chance to secure a roster spot with the Panthers in training camp, but will likely split time between the AHL and NHL once again in 2015-16. He will, however, be one of the first players the Panthers turn to in case of injury or poor performance. He suited up for 33 games with the big club last season, tallying a total of three points in those contests. As one would expect, he fared much better in the 41 games he played with AHL San Antonio in 2014-15, registering a total of 20 points in those games.

Petrovic has an even plus-minus on the season and has watched his ice time continue to point in the right direction, as he logged a season-high 20:48 on Tuesday. Petrovic has limited fantasy value due to his meager point totals, but the former second-round pick could provide help down the line.

    Analysis: Since getting called up on Jan. 29, Alex Petrovic only has one point, but posted a positive plus/minus for the second time in his 12 games with the Panthers. The third period fight more than doubled his penalty minute total for the season from four to nine. He was a good point producer for the San Antonio Rampage, the team's AHL affiliate, posting 19 points in 39 games before his call-up. The 22-year-old could flourish into a top-four defenseman, but right now, he has limited fantasy value.
