  • Panthers' Rudolfs Balcers: Notches go-ahead goal

    Balcers scored a goal Friday, but the Panthers fell to the Lightning 3-2 in overtime. Balcers, who is attempting to earn the trust of the Panthers' coaching staff, connected on a game-tying goal Friday. That's one way to get noticed. The tally was Balcers' second of the season. Both have developed over the past two games. The 25-year-old left winger twice connected during back-to-back games (April 17-19 and Feb. 1-Jan. 30) last season with the Sharks.

  • Panthers' Rudolfs Balcers: Scores key tally

    Balcers on Wednesday scored a goal as the Panthers edged the Flyers 4-3. Balcers, who connected on a career-best 11 goals in 61 games for the Sharks last season, is seeking a bigger, on-ice role. The 25-year-old left winger recorded his first point of the season during his previous outing against the Bruins on Monday. Balcers' third-period tally Wednesday gave the Panthers a 3-2 lead. It was his first tally with his new organization.

  • Panthers' Rudolfs Balcers: Snags one-year pact

    Balcers penned a one-year contract with the Panthers on Thursday. Balcers set new career bests with the Sharks last season in games (61), goals (11) and assists (12) while averaging 15:02 of ice time. Finding minutes with a deep Panthers squad may not be quite as easy but if he can be an 82-game player for his new club, Balcers could certainly post back-to-back 20-point campaigns for the first time in his career.

  • Rudolfs Balcers: Set for buyout

    Balcers was designated for waivers by the Sharks on Tuesday in order for the team to buy out his contract, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Balcers set new personal bests across the board this season, including games played (61), goals (11) and assists (12). Despite his solid production, it seems the Sharks don't want to pay him $1.55 million this year, which seems a solid bargain based on his production. As such, Balcers shouldn't have to wait long to find a willing contract partner and could even be in line for a slight pay bump.
