The Florida Panthers did more than trade for Roberto Luongo and move Mike Weaver to Montreal on Tuesday, they also took a name off their trade block by re-signing forward Brad Boyes.

Boyes, who signed a one-year contract with the Panthers before the season when they invited him to camp on a tryout, inked a two-year deal with the team on Tuesday. Per TSN's Bob McKenzie it's a pretty affordable deal too at $2.625 million per season.

Without a contract beyond this season and given his productivity this season, there was some chatter he might be dealt but all along both sides were open that they wanted to work out a deal. Consider it done.

Boyes, 31, is the Panthers' leading goal scorer this season with 17 goals in 59 games. He also has 11 assists.
