Report: Panthers Sign Moore

According to the Sun Sentinel, the Florida Panthers have agreed to a one year contract with ex Leaf/Sabre forward, Dominic Moore. Yes, you heard me right Panthers fans, the Cats signed a forward.

Last year was Moore's "breakout year" with the Maple Leafs. At the deadline the Leafs knew he was at high value and decided to ship him out to the Sabres on deadline day. Moore didn't play as well as he did on the Sabres, leading to him not receiving an offer when it came time to resign players.

I think Moore will be a great fit in Sunrise. He is a Peter DeBoer type of player who can play solid two way hockey.

Moore's agent said a couple words about the signing to the Sun Sentinel.

"He's really excited about it," said Moore's agent, Larry Kelly told the Sun Sentinel. "He thinks it's a huge opportunity to play for Peter DeBoer. DeBoer is one of the brighter guys in the game. It's a perfect fit for Dom."

"These guys will be kindred spirits," Kelly told the Sentinel. "They'll be able to communicate extremely well and Pete will be able to assess what Dom does well and utilize him properly."
